TS BERTHA.00_00_16_10.Still001

Second tropical storm named

Four days away from the opening of the hurricane season and already there have been two named tropical storms.  Bertha was named just this morning and hours later it made landfall with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph, forty miles east of Charleston, South Carolina, USA.  The storm is expected to move inland and across the eastern and northern portions of South Carolina and into west-central North Carolina area by tonight.  International reports say that Bertha’s formation is a surprise to many, as the storm was predicted on Tuesday to have a 20 percent chance of tropical development within the next two to five days.  However, the system developed quickly overnight and gained a 70 percent chance of favorable development.  June 1 is the start of hurricane season, but already 2020 has had two named storms ahead of the official start with Arthur having formed earlier this month in the Atlantic. The early formations mark the sixth year in a row an early storm has formed.  Bertha’s formation is the sixth time in recorded history that two named storms formed either on or before May 27 and ahead of the season’s start.  Several reports indicate that this hurricane season will be a busy one and will have stronger hurricanes.  Tune in later this week as we bring you reports on the hurricane season from our local experts.///////
