No stranger to the dangers of hurricane season, Jim Cantore is the original Weather Channel storm tracker.
Jim Cantore is frequently spotted in the most vulnerable areas and warning the public ahead of the storm, reporting live during the chaos and surveying the aftermath. Cantore has been with The Weather Channel for over 33 years and has become one of the most well-known meteorologists on television.
Cantore believes everyone should get ready and stay ready for dangerous weather, at all times. Typically, by the time he shows up, it’s probably too late to prepare. It’s time to get ready before you see Jim coming!
Historically, the deadliest, most powerful and most destructive storms have come in the second half of hurricane season – and many in August.
In August 1969, Hurricane Camille made landfall and devastated the Gulf Coast. Now, 50 years later, Cantore reminds people that, while summer may be coming to an end, hurricane season is still going strong. Bringing his storm experience and expertise, Jim reveals what to expect for the rest of this hurricane season and shares storm readiness tips.
Cantore told The Daily Buzz, “People often forget how long the hurricane season actually is. The season starts on June 1st and ends on November 30th, so it should come as no surprise to get hurricanes late in the season.”
