The 2024 Atlantic hurricane season is predicted to be above-normal, according to NOAA's Climate Prediction Center [National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)]. This means an increased chance of storms impacting Aruba during the season, which runs from June 1 to November 30.

Here's a breakdown of NOAA's forecast:

  • 8 to 13 hurricanes (winds exceeding 74 mph)

  • 4 to 7 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4, or 5; winds exceeding 111 mph)

Don't wait until a storm hits! Now is the time to ensure your business is prepared for the upcoming season.


Here's what you can do:

  • Review AHATA's Hurricane Preparedness Kit 2024: This kit, approved by Aruba's Crisis Management Office, provides valuable resources and guidance for businesses to develop a comprehensive emergency plan. Share this document with the appropriate departments within your organization.

  • Develop a comprehensive emergency plan:  This plan should outline procedures for securing your facilities, protecting your employees, and ensuring business continuity during and after a storm.

  • Assemble an emergency preparedness kit: Stock essential supplies like non-perishable food, water, first-aid kits, flashlights, and a battery-powered radio.

  • Stay informed: Monitor weather forecasts closely and follow instructions from local authorities.
