Atlantic Tropical storms Ana, Bill form – hurricane expected near Florida

August 16, 2009

(ChattahBox)–  The 2009 hurricane season, which runs from June through November, has gotten off to a late start but looking to make up for lost time. The first two named tropical storms of the 2009 Atlantic hurricane season, Ana and Bill, have now formed according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC).  Ana, the first named tropical storm of the 2009 Atlantic season is heading toward the Leeward Islands, and could also threaten the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.  The NHC said Ana could eventually pass over or near the southern Florida peninsula within five days, but initial projections did not show this storm developing into a full-blown hurricane in that time.

Bill the second (but trying harder) storm of the season is located about 820 miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands is expected to become a hurricane in three to four days, with a five-day forecast track projecting it could threaten Puerto Rico and the Bahamas so far.  The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has predicted this year’s Atlantic hurricane season will see normal to below-normal activity, with seven to 11 tropical storms and three to six hurricanes.

    Hopefully it gets downgraded before it hits the mainland.
