We’re in the heart of hurricane season, and as Hurricane Dorian makes its way north up the East Coast, other systems in the Atlantic Ocean and elsewhere are developing.

September is the peak of hurricane season, which typically runs from August to October, though it can begin as early as June. This coincides with a popular travel period to the Caribbean, as families plan summer vacations and cruises before school starts up again.

Marshall Moss, AccuWeather’s vice president of forecasting and graphic operations, told Travel Market Report the best thing travel advisors can do is to be informed and do research ahead of time so that you aren’t caught off guard and scrambling to find information at the last minute. Additionally, recommending travel insurance can be your best line of defense against unpredictable weather systems.
