article imageFirst Tropic Depression Forms Days Before Hurricane Season

By KJ Mullins     May 29, 2008 in Environment
A tropical depression couldn't wait until Saturday, the start of hurricane season to form. Located off the coast of Costa Rica the depression is expected to be a tropic storm within 24 hours.
The storm is expected to approach the coast of Nicaragua. The storm is expected to bring heavy rains but not the strong winds associated with hurricanes.
NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center is predicting a near normal or above normal hurricane season this year in the Atlantic Basin.

“Living in a coastal state means having a plan for each and every hurricane season. Review or complete emergency plans now - before a storm threatens,” said retired Navy Vice Adm. Conrad C. Lautenbacher, Ph.D., undersecretary of commerce for oceans and atmosphere and NOAA administrator. “Planning and preparation is the key to storm survival and recovery.”
