Debby arrives; Atlantic season off to a fast start

Tropical Storm Debby formed Saturday afternoon in the Gulf and it seems she's trying to make up her mind on which way to travel.

Siting practically still about 220 miles south of Louisiana, the storm is expected to eventually head northwest, and away from Florida.

Manatee County is still going to get its share of rain, however. The extended forecast calls for at least a 50-60 percent chance of rain through Friday.  
It's a quick start to the 2012 season. As The Associated Press pointed out, it was the first time four tropical storms have been recorded before July 1 during the Atlantic hurricane season since record keeping began in 1851.

Of course, what that actually means for the rest of the year is anyone's guess. So finish getting that hurricane kit together. And keep checking for the latest news.
