MIAMI, CMC - The United States' National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) is predicting an above-average hurricane season this year.

NOAA said there is a 70 per cent chance of 12 to 18 named storms, which could
become one of the six to 10 projected hurricanes.

NOAA said three to six of those weather patterns could become major hurricanes,
with sustained winds from 111 miles per hour (mph) or higher.

The six-month Atlantic hurricane season begins June 1 and ends November 30.
NOAA said last year's hurricane season was one of the busiest on record, with 19
named storms, including 12 hurricanes.
