2011 will be another above-average year for Atlantic hurricanes, says the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Plan your evacuation strategy now, warns FEMA.
The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released its hurricane season forecast Thursday, acknowledging that oil released by the BP Gulf oil spill could come into play if not cleaned up.
In the upcoming hurricane season, two or three storms will be major events along the coastal US, according to AccuWeather.com.
But two researchers say it will be a slightly reduced hurricane season, partly because of a developing El Niño.
