The official start of hurricane season could be earlier next year.

Hurricane season in the Atlantic basin is usually from June through November.

The revised season would begin May 15.

Devastating early storms in the last nine years are driving the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to take a look at beginning the official season early.
