As Katrina Aniversary Nears, Expect Another Hurricane

As next weeks aniversary Hurricane Katrina nears, it looks like we're in for another Hurricane.

According to forecasters, Tropical Storm Debby has been gathering strength Wednesday off the coast of Cape Verde over the far eastern Atlantic. Satellite images indicate that the winds have increased to 45 Miles Per Hour.

According to Richard Pasch, a hurricane specialist, it may turn into a hurricane within four days, but there is no indication that it will threaten land.

For the entire 2006 season, which ends November 30, NOAA (National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration)is projecting a total of 12 to 15 named storms of which seven to nine will intensify to hurricanes, including three or four becoming major hurricanes—rated at Category 3 or higher.
