Busy Hurricane Season Predicted

Updated:
A busy tropical storm season could mean summer rain for Oklahoma.

Hurricane forecasters expect more tropical storms than normal to hit the United States this season. A subtropical storm has already formed off the southeast coast; Andrea became the first named storm of the year, well before the June 1 official beginning of hurricane season.

Officials with the National Weather Service expect 13 to 17 tropical storms this year, seven to ten of those are expected to become a hurricane, and three to five of those hurricanes could be in the strong category.

To survive theses storms people on the coasts should be prepared. David Paulison, director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, is urging costal residents to prepare their homes for the storms, and keep at least three days of food and supplies on hand.

Hurricane season ends November 30.
