Forecasters are sounding the alarm about the possibility of a very active hurricane season.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says they see conditions favorable to the formation of hurricanes, including above-average sea surface temperatures and a strong rainy season in West Africa.

The season has already produced four named storms, a historic indicator for an active season.

The peak of hurricane season lasts from mid-August to October.

With many New Yorkers still dealing with effects of Hurricane Sandy, the Federal Emergency Management Agency says now is the best time to prepare for any future storms.

Officials recommend reviewing your family's emergency plan, restocking your emergency kit and considering all insurance options.
