2015 Atlantic Hurricane Season officially begins

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The 2015 Atlantic Hurricane season has begun on Monday.

NOAA has predicted six to 11 named storms this season, with three of them turning into hurricanes.

This is projected to be a quiet season, but Chatham County Emergency Management officials said it's still very important to be prepared.

"We take an aggressive effort every single year to advertise being prepared. We want citizens to understand what our hazards are, we want them to understand what the threat is from a hurricane, and also to realize we have one of the most significant storm surge impacts from a hurricane along the east coast," said CEMA Interim Director Dennis Jones.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs through November 30.
