Forecaster predicts ‘very active’ hurricane season.

“The 2007 Atlantic hurricane season should be ‘very active,’ with nine hurricanes and a good chance that at least one major hurricane will hit the U.S. coast,” William Gray of Colorado State University predicted. “The probability of a major hurricane making landfall on the U.S. coast this year: 74%, compared with the average of 52% over the past century, he said.”
