The warning comes when the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has predicted that between 17 and 25 named storms will form this summer and fall, of which 8 to 13 will reach hurricane status and four to seven will become major hurricanes.

An average hurricane season in the Atlantic produces 14 named storms, seven of them hurricanes and three major hurricanes.
