Floridians worried over storm forecast for Memorial Day Weekend

There is growing concern that the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season may start early with the formation of tropical storm Alberto this Memorial Day holiday weekend.

The National Hurricane Center said that there is now a 70% chance that a tropical depression will form in the gulf of Mexico by the weekend.

US government forecasters said they are expecting an active Atlantic hurricane season — calling for 10 to 16 named storms, with five to nine hurricanes.

One to four hurricanes could be “major,” with sustained winds of at least 111 miles per hour.

Florida Governor Rick Scott has already directed state authorities to prepare flood response resources to help residents in case the rains get worse.

Pinoys who live in Duval County, Florida are getting worried. They have had to evacuate their home in the past when hurricanes would hit their area.
