This year's hurricane season is still predicted to be more active than normal, despite how quiet things have been so far.
That's the word from scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
They say the season has already produced four named storms, but it hasn't yet reached its peak, that usually occurs in mid-August to October.
Another indicator forecasters point to is the development of storms in the deep Tropical Atlantic.
FEMA officials say these forecast are a reminder for people to be prepared incase a hurricane strikes.
