A satellite image of Hurricane Isaias as it approached the East Coast on August 3.

It’s hurricane season in the Atlantic, and scientists say this year could be one of the busiest on record. We’ve already had a record number of named storms -- from Arthur to Marco -- and at least five people were killed as Hurricane Isaias swept up the East Coast several weeks ago.

FAQ City wants to hear from you. What questions do you have about hurricanes and hurricane season? What do you need to know to feel prepared for a storm--especially during a pandemic?

 

Share your questions and we’ll try to feature them in an upcoming episode.
