With a very active Atlantic tropical season expected, the tropics are beginning to stir.

With experts expecting a very busy Atlantic hurricane season, conditions are becoming a little more interesting lately. A cluster of showers and thunderstorms continues to move through the Caribbean Sea affecting the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and Haiti in association with a tropical wave moving through the region.The wave is moving westward at about 10 mph. This system could be developing further as conditions become more favorable. According to the National Hurricane Center there is a low chance..about 20 percent of this system becoming a tropical cyclone the next 48 hours. If the system develops into a tropical storm..it would be named Alex.

    Donna, I heard a report on this recently and the "experts" (whoever they may be) felt that the oil would have no effect on any storms as far as slowing them down or reducing their power. Of course that was several weeks ago, so who knows if they've changed their perspective.

    How are tropical storms and hurricanes gonna be affected by the oil? Will they pick up the oil and blow it around? Will it pick up and plaster the shores? Will it slow down the storms? I have not heard anyone talk about it. I feel it needs to be addressed.
