Hurricane season typically begins in June and continues through November. Here on Long Island, we are particularly vulnerable from August through October when Atlantic storms gain power and travel long distances to reach our shores. Long Beach is a barrier island, which serves as the first defense in protecting the south shore of Long Island. Because we live on a barrier island, we are exposed to hurricanes and the damage they can do.
