First Atlantic Storm formed before official Hurricane season

A tropical storm watch is in effect for part of South Carolina as the first Atlantic Tropical Storm has been formed.

Alberto, formed on Saturday, two weeks before the official start of the hurricane season, is packing winds of 50 miles per hour.

On Sunday morning, Alberto was located at 31.7°North and 79.3°West, or 95 miles South South east of Charlestown South Carolina with Tropical Storm Force winds extending up to 70 miles from the centre.

A bulletin from the National Hurricane Centre in Miami has said that Alberto is moving slowly west south-westward and is not expected to strengthen but is expected to turn toward the northeast on Monday.

The Atlantic Hurricane season officially begins on June 1st every year.©
