However, NOAA meteorologist and spokesman Dennis Feltgen cautions that it is too soon to tell because it is unclear how the storm might change overtime or interact with landfall. 

Those living in potentially affected areas “should monitor the progress of this system through the week and ensure they have their hurricane plan in place as we begin the season,” said meteorologist Gerry Bell from the NOAA Climate Prediction Center.

"Early activity in a hurricane season does not foreshadow what the rest of the season will look like," said Feltgen. While Tropical Storms Amanda and Cristobal have been life-threatening, that does not mean storms to come will be equally severe. 

Cristobal Threatens Gulf Coast From Louisiana to Florida

  Cristobal Threatens Gulf Coast From Louisiana to Florida Tropical Storm Cristobal, which forced evacuations and killed many people in El Salvador, Guatemala and Mexico, is expected to make landfall Sunday evening in Louisiana, where officials have declared a state of emergency. Gov. John Bel Edwards declared the emergency on Thursday, warning residents they should prepare to evacuate their homes ahead of tropical storm-like conditions. Officials in states vulnerable to hurricanes have acknowledged that finding safe shelter elsewhere could be complicated by the coronavirus pandemic. “While it is still too early to know for sure what impact Cristobal could have on Louisiana, now is the time to make your plans,” Mr.

However, forecasters have said it will be an active hurricane season.

NOAA meteorologists predict 13 to 19 named storms will form over the Atlantic basin. A typical season on average sees 12 named storms.

Meanwhile, six to 10 storms are anticipated to form into hurricanes, according to the NOAA, and three to six are projected to reach a Category 3 major storm threshold or higher. Although it is unpredictable whether or not any of the upcoming storms will reach land, experts warn coastal regions to prepare for the worst case scenario. 

“It’s a challenge this year with COVID-19,” Feltgen said. “Getting your supplies may take a little extra time. And it’s very important to find out if you’re in a hurricane evacuation zone. If you are, find out where your shelter is. It may not be in the same place it used to be because of COVID-19. If you are in a structure that is safe, shelter in place and stay put.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises preparing a "go-kit" of essential items including masks, gloves and hand sanitizer in the event that people need to find refuge at a public disaster shelter. Local officials will offer guidance on where and when to seek shelter while social distancing.
