Stormy Hurricane Season for 2009

Many predictions for another stormy hurricane season is due this year. With the hurricane season starting on June 1st even the legislature in Tallahassee. Governor Charlie Crist was talking on capitol hill about the upcoming hurricane season after NOAA release their predictions.

Governor Crist urged Floridians to prepare for the hurricane season predicted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to be near-normal this year, with a 70 percent chance of nine to 14 storms.

Four to seven of those storms could turn into hurricanes, and up to three could be category three, four or five, NOAA said, while Crist said Floridians should be "like a Boy Scout or Girl Scout" and prepare for the upcoming season.

NOAA’s seasonal hurricane outlook does not project where and when any of these storms may hit. Landfall is dictated by weather patterns in place at the time the storm approaches.
