End of hurricane season could be marked by a new storm
Aptly symbolizing this harrowing and historic year of hurricanes, a named storm appeared to be forming in the distant Atlantic Ocean today -- the last day of the official six-month season.
Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in West Miami-Dade County said an area of disturbed weather about 800 miles east of Bermuda continued to acquire tropical characteristics overnight and thunderstorm activity became more concentrated near the center.
''If this trend continues, subtropical or tropical storm advisories may be issued later this morning,'' the hurricane center said. ``In the meantime, marine interests should monitor this gale center.''
