Bret Expected to Become Hurricane

The National Hurricane Center was continuing to monitor the hurricane season’s second named storm, which was forecast to strengthen into a hurricane this week. Florida remained out of forecast advisories Tuesday morning. Tropical Storm Bret was producing 40 mph sustained winds as it was more than 1,000 miles east of the southern Windward Islands, moving west at 17 mph, according to the hurricane center. The storm was forecast to strengthen to a hurricane, with models indicating that it will weaken as it moves into the Caribbean. People in the Lesser Antilles were advised to monitor the system. “Given the larger than usual uncertainty in the track forecast, it is too early to specify the location and magnitude of where these hazards could occur,” the hurricane center said. “However, everyone in the Lesser Antilles, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands should closely monitor updates to the forecast for Bret and have their hurricane plan in place.” The six-month hurricane season started June 1.

Editor’s Note: So, we’re not perfect, but at least we can laugh at ourselves.  We posted an article about deer disease in Florida under this headline. The article has been replaced with the actual article body.  Because of the error, the article received 130,000 views. So we’re glad some people got a chuckle out of it.
