Is that you, Ana?

The 2009 Atlantic Hurricane Season has begun four days early, with the formation of Tropical Depression 1 off the coast of Virginia (hey, that's where I live!). It's expected to reach tropical storm status (and, if so, will be named "Ana") within the next 24 hours, but she will twirl harmlessly out to sea. A fortuitous way to begin the season, I think, heh.



Students working on earth science fair projects or weather science fair projects can greatly benefit from the data collected on this year’s storm season. Track the severity of each storm and its residual damage as a way to collect data for your projects.
