For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

Four named storms and four hurricanes, two of which became major
hurricanes, formed in the Atlantic basin in August.  Based on a
30-year climatology (1981-2010), these numbers are above the
long-term averages of three named storms and two hurricanes.

In terms of the Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE), which measures the
combined strength and duration of tropical storms and hurricanes,
activity in the Atlantic basin so far in 2017 has been near average.

Reports on individual cyclones, when completed, are available at
the National Hurricane Center website at
www.hurricanes.gov/data/tcr/index.php?season=2017&basin=atl .
