The East Coast could be in for a rough time over the next few months, with more violent than normal hurricane activity being forecasted.

Between 14 and 20 storms that are strong enough to be given a name by the National Hurricane Center (NHC) are expected in 2022, with up to 10 of those being classified as hurricanes.

Named storms have winds over 39 mph and hurricanes have winds in excess of 74 mph.

So far, three storms have risen to named status: Hurricane Bonnie and tropical storms Alex and Colin. While the NHC defines Atlantic hurricane season as running between June 1 and November 30, major hurricane activity usually doesn’t begin until August.

'Although it has been a relatively slow start to hurricane season, with no major storms developing in the Atlantic, this is not unusual and we therefore cannot afford to let our guard down,' FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell said in a statement. 'This is especially important as we enter peak hurricane season—the next Ida or Sandy could still be lying in wait.'

Recent years have seen significant upticks in hurricanes over the Atlantic. Last year was the third busiest on record, with 21 storms were strong enough to be given a name, including seven hurricanes.

It was the first time on record that there were enough storms to go through the entire alphabet for two consecutive years (the annual list of names does not include any that start with the letters Q, U, X, Y or Z). That’s a noteworthy increase from the period between 1991 to 2020, when there was an average of 14 named storms per year.

In August 2021, Hurricane Ida hit Louisiana with winds of up to 150 miles per hour, damaging thousands of homes and knocking out power for millions of people. According to government statistics, Ida killed 96 people and caused $75 billion in damage, making it the costliest U.S. natural disaster of the year.

'Communities and families should prepare now for the remainder of what is still expected to be an active hurricane season,' said National Weather Service director Ken Graham in a statement. Last year, there were 21 named storms (as seen above)

'Communities and families should prepare now for the remainder of what is still expected to be an active hurricane season,' said National Weather Service director Ken Graham in a statement. 

'Ensure that you are ready to take action if a hurricane threatens your area by developing an evacuation plan and gathering hurricane supplies now, before a storm is bearing down on your community.'

While the NHC predictions don’t forecast possible landfalls, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration seasonal outlook lead Matthew Rosencrans told DailyMail.com that in above-normal years, the United States usually sees a doubling in the number of hurricanes that reach the coast from Miami to Maine. 

Criswell warned that those living along the coast should begin preparing for what could be coming.

Just 20 minutes of advance preparation could make a huge difference when a major storm is barreling towards the coast, Rosencrans noted.

'They should make sure they have a quick, ready-to-go box of all their really important documents. They should make sure their insurance plan is up to date and review their plan with their family and loved ones,' he said.

The National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center put the likelihood of 'above-normal' storm activity at 60 per cent, which is a slight improvement from May, where the same forecasters put the odds of an above-normal season at 65 percent.

While storm activity has been relatively quiet so far, those living on the East Coast should not be lulled into a false sense of security.

'I think we often have this feeling in early August that it’s been relatively quiet even though hurricane season started on June 1, but a majority of the storms really come in the next two month period,' Kevin Reed, an associate dean at Stony Brook University’s School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences told DailyMail.com. 

'I like to put it in a different context, which is: all it takes is one storm that makes landfall in a particularly area to make a season really impactful.'

Although climate systems are incredibly complex and are affected by numerous factors, Reed said that the impacts of climate change are being felt in the extreme strength of storms seen in recent years.

'The global average temperature has increased by over a degree Celsius, the temperature in the North Atlantic is warmer than it would have been in a world without climate change,' he said. 

'Therefore, when the storms do happen, and there will be storms in the coming months, they will have a likelihood to be stronger, they will dump more rainfall than they would have and those can have real impacts if they do make landfall.'

Ripped MMA hunk Jonathan Lipnicki looks unrecognisable from when he was a child star in Jerry Maguire & Stuart Little

SHOW him the money!

Former child actor Jonathan Lipnicki looks unrecognisable from the cute child star who stole hearts in Jerry Maguire and Stuart Little.

As a six-year-old, he commanded the screen opposite Tom Cruise and Renee Zellweger in the Oscar-nominated movie in the role of Ray Boyd.

He then went on to appear in animated classic Stuart Little, as well as Doctor Dolittle.

But now, at the age of 31, he's supplementing his career with something completely different.

On Instagram he has shared snaps of his new life - as a ripped MMA fighter and a far cry from the sweet boy who charmed movie audiences in the late 90s.

Lipnicki began martial arts training when he was a young boy, after a fighter said he would teach him how to box.

After 14 years of training, he got his black belt in Jiu-jitsu in 2020.

While his dad owned an MMA promotion company, so he became a fan of the sport growing up.

 “My family actually owns an MMA promotion company, so it’s kind of a family deal," he told ESPN in 2012.

"Because of that, I’ve given my mom a lot of the fighters to fight in a show. I’m actually training one of my friends right now — he’s fighting a jiu-jitsu guy. So I’m his sparring guy. If it’s someone way better, I won’t be a good sparring partner.”

Last year, Lipnicki put his combat training to good use by escorting orthodox Jews to temple in the wake of anti-semitic attacks across the US.

After an incident outside an LA restaurant where a group of Jewish men were attacked, Lipnicki and his pal Remy Franklin set up groups outside synagogues to make sure worshippers could get to and from the temple safely.

“There have been a lot of anti-Semitic hate crimes and violence towards Jews," he told TMZ.

“He (Remy) started this group where we decided to make sure people got home and to the synagogue safely.

"A lot of us are martial artists or own martial arts gyms and not all of us are Jewish. It’s just people wanting to help other people.

2Lipnicki, right, has undergone a remarkable transformation

“Everyone should have the right to worship without being discriminated against.”

He added: “Bullies of any sort or people who promote hatred don’t like when there’s a presence there and I think having a presence is a huge deterrent.”

Lipnicki is still an actor - having starred in a series of short films. He also appeared in reality TV shows Celebs Go Dating and Worst Cooks in America.
