Record-Breaking Hurricane Season Officially Ends

Record-Breaking Hurricane Season Officially Ends

(NORTH CAROLINA NEWS NETWORK) — A record-breaking 2020 hurricane season is over.

The National Weather Service says there were 30 named storms this year, more than any other year in recorded history.

13 of them became hurricanes.

James Danco, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Raleigh, says hurricane season ended when November ended, but there could still be a named storm in December.

Danco says warmer water temperatures were a reason why. Plus, there were other factors.

For the most part, North Carolina avoided the worst of the hurricane season.

There were only three storms that affected North Carolina.
