Hurricane Preparedness Week will take place May 23-29, and the Atlantic hurricane season will start on June 1, so it’s time to look at 2010 storm forecasts for the Eastern Seaboard. (The Eastern Pacific hurricane season starts on May 15.)
Two major forecasts are predicting a severe Atlantic hurricane season, so make sure you’re prepared, especially if you live in a hurricane-prone area. If you’re a hurricane-forecast cynic, we understand. Last year we reported on predictions of a major Atlantic storm season, but not a single hurricane made landfall on the East Coast.
Accuweather.com recently forecast that the 2010 hurricane season could produce 16 to 18 named storms, six of which could impact the U.S. coastline. Storm names slated for use in 2010 include Alex, Bonnie, Colin, Danielle, Earl, Gaston, Hermine, Fiona, Igor, Julia, Karl, Lisa, Matthew, Nicole, Otto, Paula, Richard, Shary, Tomas, Virginie, and Walter, according to the National Hurricane Center.
