While "experts" are claiming that this season will be relatively quiet, I think that this will be an active year of hurricanes. They may not be Category 3's and greater, but I think at least half a dozen storms, mostly cat 1's and 2's, will make landfall in the US in highly populated areas. As Sandy showed a Cat 2 striking in a dense urban environment is nothing to sneeze at as the damage from that storm was significant enough to be the most destructive storm since Katrina.
Arthur just grazed the NC coastline and it looks like New England will avoid even a glancing blow. It's early July and there is still August and September, the two most active months for Hurricanes.
Any thoughts or predictions for the 2014 Hurricane season OT?
