Busy Atlantic Hurricane Season Predicted

The official U.S. Atlantic hurricane season forecast comes from the Climate Prediction Center at NOAA, and it predicts an especially active hurricane season in 2013. Based on the forecast, it is highly likely that weather will disrupt offshore and coastal oil production for at least one week again this year, disrupting supplies to a degree that is hard to predict in advance.

About half of people in the United States live within reach of a hurricane, and now, at the official beginning of hurricane season, is as good a time as any to consider the basic steps for preparedness. These steps may include such things as water, food, flashlights, batteries, maps, and mobile apps.
