Re: 2017: 'Active Era' + Busy Season?

The formation of Tropical Storm Gert yesterday, August 13th, marks the earliest formation of the seventh named storm in the Atlantic basin since 2005. This also makes 2017 one of only four seasons to have 7 or more named storms form by that date (1936, 1995, 2005 and now, 2017).

1936, 1995 and 2005 were all either active (1936), or hyperactive (1995 and 2005).
