We’re more than halfway through hurricane season, and so far the Atlantic has been pretty quiet. In fact the last time there were no named storms between July 15th and August 15th was 1982. 

But most hurricane activity happens after the middle of August– so what should we expect from here on out? 

On this episode of Intersection we’re talking hurricanes with a panel of experts:  asking what you should be thinking about with three months of storm season still to go. 

Eric Berger is a senior space reporter at Ars Technology. He runs the Space City weather website, where he is the editor and meteorologist. 

Jeff Huffman is chief meteorologist and the director of the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network. 

And Keith Kotch is acting manager of the Orange County Office of Emergency Management.
