Ahead of the Storm:  Hurricane Season 2011 Begins
The Atlantic Hurricane Season starts today and runs through November 30th. And while Hampton Roads does not typically see an increase in storm activity until late August, there is always the conversation to be had about preparedness.  Federal forecasters released their predictions for this season and say they expect and above average season with three to six major hurricanes.  The forecast follows one of the busiest seasons on record last year that saw intense levels of storms, but no direct hit on the U.S. coastline.  On the Wednesday edition of HearSay, the dean of weather forecasters, WAVY News 10’s chief meteorologist Don Slater joins us along with Virginia’s Coordinator of Emergency Management, Michael Cline to talk about what might lie ahead for us this season and how you can be prepared.
