NOAA Expecting Active Hurricane Season



Listen up Gulf Coast and eastern seaboard reef keepers. Hurricane season is just around the corner, June 1st in fact, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is predicting it’s going to be an active one. Meteorologists, with the help of long-range weather patterns, expect between 12 and 18 named storms to develop in the Atlantic, Caribbean, or Gulf of Mexico. Between 6 and 10 of these storms could strengthen into hurricanes, and of those, 3-6 could be major storms.

What this news means for hobbyists is they need to be prepared. Gather up supplies, plan out possible emergencies, and try to keep the inhabitants of your aquarium alive through any storm. Of course, you need to protect you and your family first, but also make sure to plan for tank emergencies. Last year, we wrote up a very helpful hurricane preparedness article that is full of different things you need to do to keep your tank alive during power outages and excess heat.
