The Atlantic hurricane season officially starts on June 1, 2013 and comes to an end on November 30, 2013. The 2013 hurricane season is predicted to be above average. The 2012 season brought the Gulf Coast an urgent reminder of just how susceptible our homes and livelihoods are to hurricanes traveling through the Gulf of Mexico. The 2012 hurricane, Isaac, made land fall near New Orleans, Louisiana but sparked significant concerns for those in Gulfport, Mississippi, Mobile, Alabama, and even as far east as Pensacola, Florida. As Hurricane Isaac developed in the gulf, all of those cities were initially targeted as landing zones for Isaac.
