Caribbean: heavy hurricane season to be expected

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminstration (NOAA) revised its predictions for the 2008 hurricane season. In the August update to the Atlantic hurricane season outlook, NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center has increased the likelihood of an above-normal hurricane season and has raised the total number of named storms and hurricanes that may form. NOAA now projects an 85 percent probability of an above-normal season. The season could produce 14 to 18 named storms, including 7 to 10 hurricanes with three to six being intense (Category 3 strength or higher).See details here>>.
