Summer hurricane season expected to be ‘average’

Hurricane Sandy off the East Coast

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Hurricane season runs from June through November – and the most active part of the season happens during the months of August and September

Names like Carol, Gloria, Bob and Sandy are reminders to young and old generations alike of what types of weather tropical storms and hurricanes can bring to our area.

We’re just six weeks into this year’s hurricane season, and so far, four names storms have surfaced. In fact, 61% of all named storms – and some of the worst to hit our area -occur during this period.

This summer’s hurricane forecast is for an average season, meaning it will most likely be more active than last year’s very quiet season.
