Hurricane forecasters at Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado predict that the increased Atlantic basin hurricane activity since 1995 will continue not only next year but also probably for the next two decades. The storm researchers estimates that the probability that a major Atlantic hurricane will make landfall on the U.S. shores next year is about 30 percent higher than the average. Researchers predict there will be three intense hurricanes rated as Category 3 storms or greater, compared with 2.3 intense hurricanes on average.
