Today (6/1) marks the first day of hurricane season and we might be seeing some intense storms again this year in Florida.

Hurricane season has officially begun and some experts are saying that this year will be intense. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicted that 13-20 storms will be named in 2021, including 6-10 hurricanes – three of those being major hurricanes, reaching category 3 or higher on the Saffir-Simpson scale. That might sound fine, but from 1981-2021 the average amount of named storms was 12.1 and an average of 6.4 hurricane. They weren’t the only one to predict a gnarly year, Colorado State University predicted 17 named storms in 2021 with eight hurricanes – four of them major hurricanes.

Those are all predictions, no one really knows how it will pan out until it’s over. Just be safe and prepare wisely… One more thing to nots, one name has already been issued. Subtropical Storm Ana formed late last month and has kicked off this year’s hurricane season. It is not a threat but it looks like things are already happening in the Atlantic…
