The Historic 2020 Hurricane Season

A significant hurricane season ends on Monday. In 2020, a record-breaking 30 storms were named and 12 made landfall in the continental United States. There were six major hurricanes, meaning the hurricanes had top winds of 111 mph or greater.

This is the most storms on record, surpassing the 28 from 2005, and the second-highest number of hurricanes on record.

Host Peter O’Dowd speaks with Jeff Huffman, director and meteorologist at the Florida Radio Emergency Network.
