Not Many Are Ready For Hurricanes


That’s on par with the forecast from Tropical Storm Risk, based in Britain, which is calling for 14.6 tropical storms during the Atlantic season. Of those, it expects 7.9 to become hurricanes and 3.6 to reach at least Category 3. In April, the hurricane forecast group at Colorado State University estimated that the season would yield 17 tropical storms, leading to nine hurricanes, five of them intense.
