Texas and Louisiana might have braced for the worst as back-to-back cyclones Marco and Laura recently barreled toward them, but in this record-setting Atlantic hurricane season, almost every seaside U.S. state east of the Mississippi River must likewise be on high alert. All however one of the 18 states bordering the Atlantic Ocean or Gulf of Mexico face a greater risk this year of a typhoon strike, according to the forecast from Colorado State University’s Department of Atmospheric Science, which has provided seasonal typhoon projections every year since 1984. Only New Hampshire’s danger remains the same at a 1% opportunity of a direct hit. Every other state’s risk increased by 33-100%. In South Carolina, the CSU team anticipated the chances of a land-falling typhoon this year at 27%, compared to a historical possibility of 18%.
