The 2016 hurricane season is the most active since 2012, with a total of 14 named storms so far, including Hurricanes Matthew (reaching Category 5 status on the Saffir-Simpson Scale and killing hundreds of people) and Nicole. As the hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin continues, our thoughts are with the victims from places hit by these storms.
