Hurricane season began in June and already Tropical Storms Alberto, Beryl and Chris have brought heavy rains and flooding to the Leeward Islands of the Caribbean and the southern U.S. Predictions point to another busy season, with experts calling for at least three category 5 storms. In addition to the three storms that have already passed, the names chosen for this year’s storms include Debby, Ernesto, Florence, Gordon, Helene, Isaac, Joyce, Kirk, Leslie, Michael, Nadine, Oscar, Patty, Rafael, Sandy, Tony, Valerie, and William. Let’s hope we stay clear of the Greek alphabet this year!
