The 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season begins on Tuesday June 1st and the National Hurricane Center’s spokesperson, Dennis Feltgen, told Jen and Bill to get ready for another “active” season.

We have already had one Tropical Storm, Ana, which popped up in May in the mid-Atlantic and did not impact land. Also, there was a tropical wave that flamed out in the Gulf of Mexico.
But, this year the Gulf should not be as busy as last year with most of the storms likely spinning up the east coast to Georgia and the Carolinas.
Feltgen also warns that many of our new residents who migrated to our state have never experienced a hurricane and may need some help with preparedness.
He says we will not see the 30 named storms we saw last year, but we will see an above normal season. And, it just takes one to hit for a hurricane season to be disastrous.
