June 1st is the beginning of the 2017 Hurricane Season

According to newspaper reports and information from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) the 2017 Atlantic cyclone season might see between 11 and 17 tropical cyclones in the Atlantic, the Gulf of Mexico or the Caribbean area. Local newspapers are reporting that perhaps three or four of this year’s hurricanes might come very close to our shores.

NOAA, speaking through the National Hurricane Center, said that this year’s forecast predicts 11 to 17 tropical storms, of which as many as nine might become hurricanes and of these perhaps 2 to 4 might become serious category 3 or above storms. Experts at the University of Colorado are forecasting 11 storms of which four might become hurricanes.

The National Meteorological Office (Onamet) and the Center of Emergency Operations (COE) are preparing their responses to this year’s storm season.
