MISSISSAUGA, ON September 11, 2018 /insPRESS/ – Hurricanes season is underway, and while hurricanes are historically less likely to hit Canada as hard as the United States, they can still have a significant impact on Canadian communities.
With Hurricane Florence on its way towards the U.S. East Coast and areas of Ontario and eastern Canada experiencing the remnants of tropical depression Gordon, Canadians can expect to see more hurricane-induced weather.
Canada’s hurricane season spans June to November, with activity peak in September. In recent years, the southern and eastern coasts of North America have seen more hurricane activity. Seventeen named storms developed in the Northeast Atlantic in 2017, including 10 hurricanes and six major hurricanes.
When these intensive storm systems make landfall on Canadian soil they are sometimes no longer classified as hurricanes but remain extremely powerful storm systems.
As with any emergency, preparedness is the best way to lower the risk of property damage. If you live on an Atlantic coastal area, or immediately in-land, the time to start preparing is before peak hurricane season arrives.

Water damage and property loss are only some of the devastating outcomes that can occur when people are unprepared or unsure of how to deal with the after-effects of a hurricane.
