It’s just early August and North Carolina has already been hit by a hurricane. Last week, hurricane forecasters ramped up their predictions to “extremely active” for this year’s season.

Spectrum News 1 Meteorologist Lee Ringer and North Carolina Climatologist Dr. Kathie Dello join us on this week’s episode of Tying It Together with Tim Boyum to discuss why conditions are so ripe this year for major hurricanes.

We’ll also talk about why we have seen so many devastating storms in recent years, if it’s a trend, and how North Carolina’s climate continues to change.

Also, get tips on how you can keep yourself and your family safe when disaster strikes.
