“The season is going to be busy,” said Ken Graham, director of the National Hurricane Center in an Aug. 13 video statement.

“The prediction is for a busy season.”

The current storm activity marks the second time in history that five tropical cyclones, or systems classified as a depression, tropical storm or hurricane, were over the Atlantic at the same time, according to Colorado State University meteorologist Philip Klotzbach.

The two hurricanes being tracked, named Paulette and Sally, are currently hitting Bermuda and the Gulf of Mexico respectively, according to the NHC.

Sally intensified and was declared a hurricane Monday afternoon.

The NHC has issued six total advisories.

Five advisories include the named storms in the Atlantic and Tropical Storm Karina which is currently located over the eastern Pacific.

“A Storm Surge Warning means there is a danger of life-threatening inundation, from rising water moving inland from the coastline, during the next 36 hours in the indicated locations,” the NHC said in a statement about Hurricane Sally.
