Atlantic hurricane season starts Thursday. Be glad it’s not 1992

Forecasters say this upcoming season could be busier than usual, with a 70 percent chance of 11 to 17 named storms, five to nine hurricanes and two to four major storms with winds topping 111 mph. A quarter century after Hurricane Andrew slammed into South Florida, forecasters have a much better chance, and more time, to get the storm track right.
