The Atlantic hurricane season is underway today, and the Delaware Emergency Management Agency wants you to be prepared in the event of a hurricane or a coastal storm.
The season lasts for six months. US government forecasters expect an above-average season, with three to six major hurricanes possible. The country has not taken a direct hit from a major hurricane in nearly five years, but emergency management officials say luck can only last so long.
