Colorado State University (CSU), which released its 2022 hurricane forecast on April 7, predicts an “above-normal” hurricane season with 19 named storms and upwards of nine hurricanes this year. In addition, their projections indicate that there is a high (69%) chance that one of these storms will make landfall.

Fortunately, in Illinois, we are not at risk of a direct hit from a hurricane but do experience our fair share of severe summer weather. Often when a hurricane makes landfall on one of our coastlines, it also fuels an outbreak of severe weather in the Midwest, including severe thunderstorms and tornadic activity.

While often overlooked, planning for a weather-related disaster is critical in any good business preparedness plan. This article from alertmedia.com provides an insight into this season’s projections and lays out an easy-to-follow checklist for creating a plan for your business.
