Are There More Hurricanes to Come?

From the NOAA weather site there is an interesting article on the outlook for the rest of 2005. As we are now reeling from the effects of Katrina, the prospect for new major hurricanes are a very real probability.

Latest reports for CNN television reporting is that storm related deaths are beginning to come in. Mississippi has already reported 80 deaths. As I am watching the coverage, a person from North Carolina called in to CNN to report that her relatives were stranded in an attic and just broke through the roof. She also reported her relatives saw a woman hanging on in a tree.

WSET is reporting: Randy Johnson and the God's Pit Crew are planning a relief effort and through Saturday you can can contribute, clothes, non-perishables, bottled water, personal hygiene items, and baby care items at the following locations:

*In Danville at K-Mart on Riverside Drive.
*In Lynchburg at Tharp Funeral Home on Breezewood Drive.
*In Roanoke at Bonsack Baptist Church on Cloverdale Road.
*And in Forest at the Mustard Seed Cafe on Forest Road.

Hey Bob:

Speaking of more hurricanes to come, PhysOrg has a good article about how 2005 is supposed to be the worse year yet for hurricanes. Let's hope they are wrong on this story!

Thanks for the comment Dan, I just looked at that site, I am hoping with you they have it wrong also.
