We have now entered the Atlantic hurricane season, and that’s where we’ll be until the Sunday after Thanksgiving. The National Weather Service expects a slower than usual season.

Hurricanes have a major impact on utilities, and Dominion Virginia Power notes the most expensive storm in its history happened a couple of weeks after Labor Day. Isabel went on a rampage in mid-September 2003.
