Hurricane experts are predicting a below- to near-normal season this year; however this does not predict how many storms will hit land or where a storm will strike. Although a less-active season is predicted, it is important to be prepared and ready ahead of any possible storms.
Despite predictions for a below-normal to near-normal season, the entire Caribbean should prepare for the worst as years with similar quiet patterns can still unleash violent, destructive storms. The start of the Atlantic Hurricane Season on June 1st is a reminder that our families, business and communities need to be ready for any storm that may potentially come our way. The time of year has come once again;  sitting impatiently in front of the television screen waiting for the route of the new named hurricane. Sunday marked the official close of the six-month Atlantic hurricane season, making it the ninth season without a major storm to hit Florida. The National Hurricane Center recorded eight named storms in the Atlantic this year, six of them hurricanes.

Though the season was quiet, the hurricane center said forecasters were still able to use new tools that could improve track and intensity predictions.
Meantime, the eastern North Pacific hurricane season was its busiest since 1992, with 20 named storms.
Therefore, it is important to stay up-to-date for individual storm forecasts, which will be provided throughout the season.
Both tropical storms and hurricanes can bring strong winds, torrential rain, flooding, and tornadoes when it makes landfall. It became a hurricane on Monday, August 4 then took a path between the United States and Bermuda. It became a Category 3 hurricane, the first major hurricane of the season, on September 16. During the early morning of the Fourth of July, Hurricane Arthur moved over North Carolina as a Category 2 hurricane.

It became a hurricane in the Atlantic later that day as it moved over the open Atlantic Ocean.
After experiencing Hurricane Katrina, families all over the state of Louisiana are being more cautious about hurricane season.  The best advice that anyone could give for these disasters is to make a plan. Of course, no one wants to think about the worse but if a tropical storm or hurricane were to come your way, you should be ready.
