Hurricanes are massive storm systems that form over warm ocean waters and move toward land. The Atlantic hurricane season runs June 1 to November 30. The Pacific hurricane season runs May 15 to November 30. Hurricanes can happen along any U.S. coast or territory in the Atlantic or Pacific. Hurricanes can affect areas more than 100 miles inland. Hurricane season is most active in September. Threats from hurricanes include powerful winds, heavy rainfall, storm surges, coastal and inland flooding, rip currents, tornadoes, and landslides.
