Expectations for 2011 Hurrican Season
The coast, we all love it. But the people who live on it have to deal with dangers most tourists never see, hurricanes. Hurricanes do massive wind and water damage to anywhere they strike as most of us remember Hurricane Katrina hitting New Orleans. Unfortunately for my coastal friends the experts are calling for another busy hurricane season. They are calling for an expected 16 tropical storms with 9 of them turning into full fledged hurricanes. Thanks to the CNN Wire Staff we have probabilities from Colorado State University on what will happen.
