How many hurricanes form each year?

6 hurricanes

According to the National Hurricane Center, tropical cyclones develop into hurricanes an average of 5 to 6 times per year in the Atlantic basin. In the East Pacific basin, on the other side, hurricanes form on average of 9 times per year with 5 likely to become huge ones. However, few of the major hurricanes reach the United States as hurricanes. They usually reduce to tropical storms or dissipate before they hit the continent.
