According to Colorado State University hurricane researchers, a moderate El Niño could develop by the peak of the Atlantic hurricane season. El Niño is known to warm the Equatorial Pacific Ocean every two to seven years and is associated with weakening hurricane season patterns in the Atlantic. Storm predictions range but most accredited weather forecasters foresee moderate storm activity this year: with 11 named storms and four hurricanes, two of which are expected to be Category 3 or higher in U.S. territories.
“While seasonal forecasts may vary from year to year – some high, some low – it only takes one storm to significantly disrupt your life,” stated FEMA Deputy Administrator Joseph Nimmich. Preparing for the worst can keep you, your family, and first responders out of harm’s way.”
