Hurricane season starts off with new record in place.

The upcoming season starts on June 1st.

But there's something running in the background.

The season will begin with a record-long stretch of no intense hurricane US landfalls still continuing.

Sure, we're talking about Majors (cat 3,4,5), and not including the islands, but you'll have to agree that 2412 days since a major hurricane hitting the MAINLAND US is unprecedented.

So we'll need to see just how long this unusual streak of good weather can last.
