Atlantic Hurricane Season Began on June 1st: Are You Ready?
This year, the season began on June 1, 2022, and extends until November 30, 2022.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is predicting an above-normal Atlantic Hurricane Season, which would make it the seventh consecutive above-average hurricane season identified by the forecasters at NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, a division of the National Weather Service.
For the 2022 hurricane season, NOAA is forecasting a likely range of 14 to 21 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 6 to 10 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 3 to 6 major hurricanes (category 3, 4 or 5; with winds of 111 mph or higher). NOAA provides these ranges with a 70% confidence.
Since there is little Florida residents can do to control the hurricane season itself, the U.S. Secretary of Commerce, Gina M. Raimondo, states, “Early preparation and understanding your risk is key to being hurricane resilient and climate-ready.”
Hurricanes are not just a coastal problem in Florida. Find out how rain, wind, water, and even tornadoes could happen far inland from where a hurricane or tropical storm makes landfall by determining your risk early in the season and planning accordingly.
Know your Evacuation Zone & Plan Your Route
Florida residents may have to evacuate quickly due to a hurricane if they live in an evacuation zone. Make sure everyone in your household knows and understands your hurricane plans, including learning your evacuation routes.
Follow the instructions from local emergency managers, who work closely with state, local, tribal, and territorial agencies, and partners. They will provide the latest recommendations based on the threat to your community and appropriate safety measures.

- Download the FEMA app and receive real-time alertsfrom the National Weather Service for up to five locations nationwide.
- Sign up for community alertsin your area and be aware of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA), which require no sign up.
