Today concludes another hurricane season and named storms were above the seasonal average. The NOAA determines that an average season has twelve tropical-named storms, six hurricanes and two major hurricanes. The 2012 season will be entered into the hurricane archives with 19 named storms, ten hurricanes and one major storm. This represents an above normal season but adds to the tenth busiest years in the last three decades. For the second year in-a-row the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast suffered devastating impacts from a named storm. Last year it was Irene and this year - Sandy. As LaPlace suffered devastating flooding from Isaac it tied Keith for the strongest hurricane of the season. The National Hurricane Center expected 12 to 17 storms and two to three major hurricanes.
