Lower than average hurricane activity in the Atlantic

The U.S. Atlantic coast is currently experiencing a record low in hurricane activity, according to meteorologist Joe Joyce. Joyce says that while the hurricane season on the Atlantic coast started early with arrival of Tropical Depression One on May 28, it quickly went dormant for the next two months.

And on August 12, when Tropical Storm Ana developed in the vicinity of the Cape Verde Islands, it marked the latest date since 1992 when the season’s first tropical cyclone was names in the Atlantic basin.

The Atlantic coast isn’t alone, as hurricane activity across the globe is also at a record low.
