The Atlantic hurricane season is the period in a year when hurricanes usually form in the Atlantic Ocean. In the Northern Atlantic Ocean, a distinct hurricane season occurs from June 1 to November 30, sharply peaking from late August through September; the season’s climatological peak of activity occurs around September 10 each season.
When a storm is approaching Canada, Environment Canada will issue an Information Statement, a Watch or a Warning bulletins. Links to this information (along with real-time satellite and radar pictures) can be found on the Canadian Hurricane Centre website. You can also click on the links to find detailed information on the science of tropical cyclones, to read about current and past hurricane seasons or to find out how you can prepare for the effects of a tropical cyclone.
