new warnings that we could be headed for a powerful hurricane season. Government forecasters now raising their predictions. More frequent storms, stronger winds. And that means more potentially devastating hurricanes. Sam is tracking it all for us. Sam? With the boost in that number, amy, we have to look and see exactly what that means. We'll start with what they said now. Here's what noaa said. They're looking for 12 to 17 named storms. That's up from the beginning of the season. We were active and had storms before the official start of the season. Average is 12. We're going more than average on that. You know ernesto is on the board right now. That's the storm moving through mexico. 15 inches of rain, 2 dead. This was just a category 1. It reminds us to keep an eye on storms, even when they're fairly weak by hurricane standards. And look where map is. The forecasters decided the second part of the season would be bigger than the first. It's bumper-to-bumper on the hurricane highway. From mexico to the coast of africa. That's ernesto we showed you. That's t.D.7, just got named yesterday. And this one off the african coast, just off the coast. Already has a 50% chance to become a strong tropical system for next week. Since t.D.7 has an identification, it has a track. And we're looking for this to fellow ernesto. And by wednesday, being in the cuba area. We're just not sure. The bottom line is the hurricane center and the government forecasters think we're in for a busy time. All coastal areas have to pay attention. George?
