Hurricane Season is fast approaching. While New Jersey is still rebuilding from Sandy, a hurricane hitting the Jersey Shore in 2013 could be beyond devastating.

According to Kelly Waldron from the Townsquare News Network,

Top forecasters are predicting an above-average season in the Atlantic which 18 tropical storms forecast, of which nine will be hurricanes.

There is a 72 percent chance that a major hurricane will hit the United States. During a typical year, there are 12 tropical storms, of which seven are hurricanes. The forecast was released by meteorologists Philip Klotzbach and William Gray at Colorado State University’s Tropical Meteorology Project.

Natural disasters seem to be taking place more often. Just a couple of months ago, a huge tornado was caught on film in Georgia. You can check out that video below.
