For the eastern North Pacific, east of 140 degrees west longitude:

One tropical cyclone formed in the basin in June, Hurricane Carlos.
In addition, Blanca became a tropical storm and eventually a major
hurricane during June.  Based on a 30-year average (1981-2010), two
named storms form in the basin in June, with one of those storms
reaching hurricane strength.  On average, a major hurricane forms in
the basin in June about once every 3 years.

In terms of Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE), which measures the
combined strength and duration of tropical storms and hurricanes,
activity in the basin through June is at a record level going back
to the beginning of reliable records in 1971.  The ACE through the
end of June is more than 350 percent of the 1981-2010 median value.

Reports on individual cyclones, when completed, are available at
the website of the National Hurricane Center:
