The 2020 Atlantic Hurrican has seriously racked up storms at a very breakneck speed. This season is having too many storms. The number of storms is so great that the Hurricane Center had to look to the Greek alphabet for storm names. This was due to running out of official names. Epsilon has also represented a record for the earliest 26th named storm. It beat out Nov. 22 in 2005. According to a Colorado State University hurricane researcher named Phil Klotzbach.
Klotzbach suggested if Epsilon becomes a hurricane by Wednesday, it will be the 10th hurricane of the 2020 from the Atlantic season to date.
