Whirlwind of Hurricanes to be expected

The official forecast for the 2002 hurricane season is more active than normal
with nine to 13 named storms, including six to eight hurricanes and two to three
major hurricanes.

The official season runs from June 1 through Nov. 30, and
government and emergency officials are busy tweaking their final predictions.
They warned that coastal residents, who have escaped a hurricane strike for two
years, may run out of luck this year.
