National Weather Center Warns Of Hurricane Risks

More details today on a story we first told you about on Tuesday… The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is cautioning that the upcoming hurricane season could be “extraordinary” for the East Coast… including us right here in Virginia. With predictions ranging from 17 to 25 named storms, 8 to 13 hurricanes, and 4 to 7 major hurricanes, NOAA underscores the need for preparation. Factors such as the El Nino-La Nina phenomenon and elevated sea surface temperatures contribute to the heightened forecast. To enhance public awareness, NOAA has introduced new tools, including visuals illustrating potential storm impacts beyond the traditional cone of uncertainty. With the season officially commencing this Saturday, June 1, authorities stress the importance of readiness and vigilance in mitigating storm-related risks.
