Experts at the National Hurricane Conference have predicted that Florida and the Caribbean will be hit by a “busier than normal” hurricane season.

Forecasters at the annual conference in Orlando said warmer waters in the Southern Atlantic may fuel stronger and more frequent storms this year.

One concern is that a storm will hit Haiti, where many are living in tents after the country was leveled by an earthquake in January.

Experts are finalising their forecasts for the season. “The probability is still that we’ll have a somewhat above-average season,” said Philip Klotzbach of the Tropical Meteorology Project at Colorado State University.
