A below-normal hurricane season, June 1 - November 30, is likely for the Atlantic basin this year: 6-11 named storms, of which 3-6 could become hurricanes, including 0-2 major hurricanes. This is not a prediction of land falling storms, but total activity within the basin. USACE employees stand ready to engage in severe weather emergency support missions.
