Albany-- The Atlantic Hurricane season doesn't officially start for three weeks, but the first named storm is already churning just off the Georgia coast. Subtropical Storm Andrea is this year's first named storm. It has top sustained winds of about 45 miles per hour and is centered about 100 miles Southeast of Savannah.
Experts forecast an active 2007 season with seventeen named storms, including nine hurricanes and five intense hurricanes.Dougherty County Emergency Management director Jim Vaught says now is the time to prepare an emergency.
"Were looking for an active year as the weather forecasters have predicted and what we try to do this time of year is encourage everyone to think about what you are going to do this season. A plan of action in case you have to evacuate, a safety kit so that you have all the items you might need to survive for three day's" said EMA Director Jim Vaught.
Subtropical Storms have wind speeds as strong as Tropical Storms, but they don't form in the same way or have the same organization as tropical storms. Andrea is moving west slowly, at only about three miles per hour.
