    Strong chance another big hurricane will hit US

    By Jane Sutton

    MIAMI, Sept 2 (Reuters) - The record-breaking Atlantic hurricane season is only half over and there is a 43 percent chance another major hurricane will hit the U.S. coast in September, a noted storm forecaster said on Friday.

    "Unfortunately, we are continuing the bad news by predicting above-average activity for September and October," said Colorado State University hurricane researcher William Gray.

    Hurricane Katrina is believed to have killed thousands of people along the U.S. Gulf Coast and inflicted the greatest losses ever caused by a hurricane in the United States. The economic loss from the storm is expected to top $100 billion.

    Gray and his colleagues calculated there was a 43 percent chance another major hurricane with top winds over 110 mph (177 kph) would strike somewhere along the U.S. coast in September.

    For October, the chance of that happening is 15 percent, they said.

    That was based on the Colorado State University team's monthly updated forecast for the June-November Atlantic hurricane season, issued on Friday.

    They stuck with earlier estimates the season would bring 20 named tropical storms, with 10 of those becoming hurricanes and six strengthening into major hurricanes.

    By Thursday, 12 named storms, four hurricanes and three major hurricanes had come and gone. Midway through the season, that tally was already 110 percent of the historical average for the whole six-month season.

    "The very active season we have seen to this point is far from over," said Philip Klotzbach, another of the Colorado State researchers.

    Tropical Storm Maria, No. 13, formed in the Atlantic Ocean on Friday but that one did not threaten land, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said.

    It was about 880 miles (1,415 km) east-northeast of the northern Leeward Islands of the Caribbean and moving west. Forecasters said it would gradually turn northwest on a course that would keep it well away from land. It had top winds of 40 mph (65) kph and was not expected to strengthen.

    September is traditionally the most active month for hurricane activity.

    The Atlantic has entered an era of increased major hurricane activity that is expected to last two or three decades. Conditions this year are especially favorable for more and stronger hurricanes. The ocean is warmer than usual and the wind and temperature fluctuations that tend to squelch Atlantic storms are not present.

          If another does hit like that, people should now have the sense to evacuate or go to a shelter instead of staying home. In Pascagoula, MS several doctors and their wives died because they stayed at their houses on the beach. They didn't want to evacuate because of looters. Thats what my uncle told me.

                This is probably the only good reason to live in Iowa. The only effects a hurricane could have up here is jackin up the gas prices.

                R.I.P to all the people who died from the hurricane and best of wishes to the people of N.O.
                It's hard man, my life is scarred man

                    Damn, I'm fortunate that hurricanes weaken dramatically by the time they get even close to New York.

                          Yes. The people need to be warned. I understand we should be focusing on Katrina help, but damn. Maybe it's cause my cable got cut recently but I haven't heard of anyone saying this warning has been on the news. SMH.
