Government warns of worst hurricane season since 2005

submitted on May 27, 2010 by mooncow728 in "Member's Lounge"
In its first forecast for the storm season that begins next Tuesday, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecast 14 to 23 named storms, with 8 to 14 developing into hurricanes, nearly matching 2005's record of 15.

Three to seven of those could be major Category 3 or above hurricanes, with winds of more than 110 miles per hour (177 km per hour), the agency said, echoing earlier predictions from meteorologists for a particularly severe season that could disrupt U.S. oil, gas and refinery operations.

      Really it means everything will go up. It seems like whenever they raise gas that companies tack on gas surcharges to stores which in turn get handed to us. Sad thing is the prices never drop back down on most items after gas goes down so we're stuck paying more forever. Sad
