It’s been a pretty quiet few years when it comes to Hurricanes for the United States but that may soon change. According to a new report, The Atlantic basin will see the most named storms since the 2012 season, the year Sandy crippled the East Coast, with five to eight of those strengthening into hurricanes by Nov. 30, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has recently predicted.
Excerpt From The Globe:
NOAA increased its outlook to 12 to 17 named storms with winds of at least 39 miles per hour in the tropical Atlantic after the end of El Nino, which can produce winds that damage systems, according to an updated forecast released Thursday. Two to four storms could grow into major hurricanes with winds of at least 111 miles per hour.
