Up to 14 hurricanes are being predicted for the Western Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) - and up to seven of these could be major storms.
"The numbers are going to go up quite high," said hurricane forecaster William Gray.
This year's season, which runs from next week to the end of November, "looks like a hell of a year," he added.
The current hurricane record was set in 2005, which saw 15 of them, including Hurricane Katrina that killed around 1,500 and caused $80bn (£55bn) in damage.

First off, let's consider the qualifiers. The predictions are offered in percentages of probability and wide ranges -- a 7 in 10 chance of having 9 to 14 storms. The significant margin of error has meant that the NOAA has been generally accurate over the last several seasons. Last year NOAA predicted a strong chance (65 percent) of an "above normal" season with 12 to 16 named storms; of these, 6 to 9 were expected to become hurricanes, with 2 to 5 major hurricanes. In the end, we saw 16 named Atlantic storms, with eight hurricanes, five of them major -- all within the ranges. And in 2007, the 15 named storms fell within the original estimate of 13 to 17.

...I spoke with Ken King today, he wants to know who you are, as I know for a fact no one was living with him or his daughter in 1999. He said call him, you say you lived with him, you must know his number, it has not been changed. You gave him good laugh with your lies.
