Monday marked the official start of hurricane season for the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. Forecasters predict a less busy season, but remind folks one storm can do plenty of damage.

FOX News Radio's Eben Brown reports from Miami. 

Fewer than average, to hurricane forecasters, still means a busy hurricane season, because only one tropical cyclone can ruin your day or even your life...

(Sullivan) "No matter how many pitches mother nature throws at us, from only a few to a whole lot, if just one of those pitches gets through the strike zone, we could be in for a lot of trouble."

NOAA Administrator Kathryn Sullivan, who reminds coastal and inland residents to be prepared for any need, by staging supplies and making sure your insurance policies are in order.

This year, the National Hurricane Center will expand its warning system for storm surge risks related to tropical events.
