This year’s hurricane season might be ‘extremely active,’ federal forecasters warn


As if the devastation wrought by last year’s Hurricane Sandy wasn’t bad enough, federal forecasters have announced that the coming months will bring “an active or extremely active” hurricane season in the Atlantic.

In a newly issued release, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) today joined a host of independent forecasting outlets that have already released stormy predictions for this year’s hurricane season, which starts in June. A typical season, according to NOAA, entails 12 named storms and six hurricanes — three of which are strong enough to be deemed category 3, 4, or 5 storms.
