As the summer travel season begins, government agencies have unveiled their forecasts for this year’s hurricane season.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center, the 2024 hurricane season is anticipated to be “above-normal” in the Atlantic basin region.


NOAA’s prediction indicates an 85 percent likelihood of above-normal activity, potentially leading to 17-25 named storms, 8-13 hurricanes, and 4-7 major hurricanes.


NOAA Administrator Rick Spinrad, Ph.D., underscored the agency’s dedication to providing life-saving information to Americans during the approaching active hurricane season.


For travelers planning trips to hurricane-prone areas such as Florida or the Caribbean, airlines will regularly update their operational status and travel waivers on their websites’ “Alerts” pages. These updates will offer guidance on flight interruptions, cancellations, and ticket refunds.

As part of storm preparedness efforts, the agency has released the list of names for the 2024 storms, which includes Alberto, Beryl, Chris, and others.

The release of the NOAA report coincides with severe weather events affecting millions of Americans, including heavy flooding in Texas and tornadoes in Iowa.

FEMA Deputy Administrator Erik A. Hooks stressed the importance of proactive measures in the face of increasingly challenging climate conditions, emphasizing the necessity for preparedness and resilience within communities.
