Better Than Shark Attacks

In the year after Katrina, tropical storms will replace shark/gator attacks as MSMs favorite contrived news story.

Tropical Storm Alberto Makes Way Towards Florida's West Coast

Most of Florida's west coast was under a tropical storm watch Sunday as the first named storm of the 2006 Atlantic hurricane season spun over the Gulf of Mexico, threatening to bring heavy rain in the next few days.

Well hide the women and children. Someone do something! Damned global warming.

"We do not have any significant changes," said Lixion Avila, a senior hurricane specialist. "The system remains poorly organized."

And yet it is still on the front of every major American news site in existence.

Residents of the state's Gulf Coast were watching the storm, including Patricia Haberland, whose back porch was flooded by 12 inches of rain in March. She put a few valuables in plastic bins this weekend just to be on the safe side.

The horror, the horror...

Scientists say the 2006 season could produce as many as 16 named storms, six of them major hurricanes. could not!
