The 2016 Hurricane season for the North Atlantic basin starts on June 1, 2013 and continues until November 30, 2016. In January 2016, tropical storm Alex formed in the Atlantic making for the earliest forming named system. The previous 2015 North Atlantic hurricane season was a below-average season, with 11 named storms, 4 of which were hurricanes (2 reaching major hurricane strength). The season for 2016 may be more active due to a weakening ENSO pattern expected. Always have a disaster or hurricane plan! Updates will be posted during any Atlantic tropical activity.
