A Storm starts as a Tropical Depression and moves on to become a Tropical Storm before it is given a name. Once a storm is named, preparations for the possible hurricane should be well under way.
|Hurricane Names for 2021|
The 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season began on Tuesday, June 1, and will come to an end on November 30, 2021.
According to the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM), 2021 is expected to have an active Hurricane Season. So far, predictions are that there will be 13-20 tropical storms, 6-10 hurricanes or 3-5 major hurricanes.
