Hurricane season begins on June 1, so now is a good time to make sure you're prepared for any possible tropical system if you haven't already done so, and to have a plan in place to keep you and your family safe!

Meteorologists are expecting 2022 to be another active year, with the well-respected team at Colorado State University’s Tropical Weather and Climate Research Division calling for 19 named storms (tropical storm or stronger) with nine of them reaching hurricane status. Of those nine, four are forecast to become major hurricanes -- storms with wind speeds of 111 mph or higher.

The meteorologists with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) also predict a busy 2022 Atlantic hurricane season, forecasting a likely range of 14 to 21 named storms, of which six to 10 could become hurricanes, including three to six major hurricanes.

Whether or not we see an active hurricane season, now is the time to prepare, get the supplies you need, and make sure your family knows exactly what to do in case an evacuation order is issued.
