It's Hurricane Season

The latest hurricane forecast was released two days ago by Colorado State University's Dr. William Gray and you can read it here (pdf). Basically it says we can expect eight Atlantic basin hurricanes this season and seven tropical storms, with Florida being the most likely state to get hit. A separate interactive Landfall Probability Table gives our area a 6.9% chance of an intense hurricane making landfall this season. Some think we are overdue and under prepared for this possibility (click here for that story) as few now remember the 1938 hurricane nicknamed The Long Island Express.
