correct: early to mid september is peak.
incorrect: August 27th is late
Based on the likelihood of a hurricane developing and hitting somewhere, late August IS late in the hurricane season!
Are you familiar with the BELL CURVE??? Despite the fact that the season ends in November, the actual number of hurricanes that strike near that time, ie in late Sept or Oct, is very small. The area under the edge of the bell curve, ie the number of hurricanes, is very small.
