National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) meteorologists announced yesterday that they expect as many as six major hurricanes during the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. "This year, oceanic and atmospheric conditions in the Atlantic basin are expected to produce more and stronger hurricanes,” said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster with NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center. “These conditions include weaker wind shear, warmer Atlantic waters and conducive winds patterns coming from Africa."

Kathrn Sullivan, NOAA acting adminstrator said “As we saw first-hand with Sandy, it’s important to remember that tropical storm and hurricane impacts are not limited to the coastline. Strong winds, torrential rain, flooding, and tornadoes often threaten inland areas far from where the storm first makes landfall.”

Make sure you adequately prepare to take care of your family and pets in case a hurrican threatens.
