This year's Atlantic hurricane season is expected to see above-normal activity, according to Tropical Storm Risk (TSR). Current and projected climate indicators show a 55 percent chance, or moderate likelihood, that the Atlantic basin's hurricane activity will be one of the busiest historically. TSR said there is a 59 percent probability that a hurricane will make landfall in the United States. The forecast, covering the June 1-Nov. 30 hurricane season, is based on data collected through the end of March, and from expertise by climate physicists, meteorologists, and insurance industry companies.
