BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The peak of the Atlantic Hurricane Season is bringing tropical activity times three. Fred, Grace and Henri are all being monitored by the National Hurricane Center.

The good news: none pose a threat to South Florida, although Henri is atypical in its direction of travel. Even so, it is unlikely to threaten South Florida.
