The Atlantic Ocean's hurricane conveyor belt now appears to be in full gear.
On Monday, another tropical storm, TS Fiona, formed behind Hurricane Earl which formed after TS Danielle.
Danielle is out at sea and not a threat. But Hurricane Earl, with winds clocked at 135 mph, has put many on alert on islands in the Bahamas and the Lesser Antilles, including the Virgin Islands. There are concerns Earl could hit the U.S.'s East Coast, especially North Carolina, later in the week.
The experts predicted it would be an active hurricane season. They were right.
