6 Facts That Gulf Coast Business Owners Should Know to Prevent Hurricane Damage

Hurricanes are common occurrences in the Gulf Coast area, so here at Phoenix Coatings, we have to put together a list of facts that would help your business prepare in case of any hurricane damages to your property:

  1. The Atlantic hurricane season starts on June 1st and ends on November 30th.
    • Anyone doing business in the Gulf Coast area should be aware of the hurricane season timeframe, so your business can adapt in the event of a hurricane. Hurricane damage can be difficult to predict as there are multiple factors that could cause damage, like water, wind, loose debris, and more. Not to mention, hurricanes can also pause normal business operations for other reasons, like road flooding, no power, or no internet.
  2. During the Atlantic hurricane season, the most active time of the season is from late August through September.
    • While there is some leeway for last-minute repairs in the first couple months of the Atlantic hurricane season, and any major repairs to the building may require months to complete. That is why it is important to repair any hurricane damages as soon as possible and ensure that the hurricane restoration is not only repairing the damages but also strengthening your business for the next hurricane.
  3. When hiring a contractor to do hurricane restoration on your property, make sure the contractor has the proper certification to work on your building.
    • Phoenix Coatings is a certified contractor in both Florida and Alabama. You can check out our awards and certifications here: Link
  4. For hurricane updates, you can follow your local news or the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
    • It is vital to keep updated on any tropical storms or hurricanes heading towards your area, as it allows you to gauge the best course of action for your business. Following the local news helps us view what the storm looks like, as often times we see broadcasts of reporters in the storm, and NOAA helps give us a general idea where the storm is heading. The local news will also share the direction of the storm, but the NOAA website will display that information, if you need to urgently check it.

  5. Make note of evacuation routes and emergency shelters in the event you and your employees have to evacuate.
    • For extra precaution, it’s good to make sure everyone knows where to locate the emergency exits.
  6. If you are a business owner, make a business disaster recovery plan in case the worse-case scenario happens.

Some Fun Hurricane Trivia

  • In 1953, the World Meteorological Organization started to name tropical storms and hurricanes, with the names rotating every six-years.
  • A hurricane name is retired if a hurricane associated with the name was devastating enough to be remembered.

Hurricane Season is just Around the Corner

Hurricane season is almost here, and it’s important to be prepared for what could be a very active year. If you have been hold off on Hurricane repairs, now is the time to act to get your business ready for hurricane season.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts that this year’s Atlantic hurricane season will be “near-normal” with 13 named storms, 6 hurricanes, 3 major hurricanes, and an Accumulated Cyclone Energy index of 86 units (average 92). In addition, there is an increased chance of tropical activity in the Gulf of Mexico due to warmer than normal sea surface temperatures throughout most of its waters.

The Benefits of Early Preparation

The benefits of early preparation are many, including:

  • Reduced cost. By getting repairs done before the hurricane season begins, you can save money by avoiding the rush and competition that often occur during the storm season. You’ll also have more time to find qualified contractors and get your repairs done right the first time around.
  • Less disruption to operations. If a business has been damaged by a hurricane or other natural disaster, it’s likely that employees will need to work from home until their office is repaired or rebuilt–which means lost productivity for everyone involved! Getting your repairs done early will allow employees who live in areas at risk for storms (or those who simply want peace of mind) an opportunity to plan ahead so they can spend less time away from work during their busy seasons.
  • Improved safety measures for all involved parties involved with the project itself: contractors and subcontractors alike should always be mindful about safety precautions when working on projects involving heavy machinery such as jackhammers or construction equipment like bulldozers during high winds.
