MIAMI — Check the expiration date on that canned food and dust off the hurricane shutters, the 2008 Atlantic Hurricane Season has officially begun.
Hurricane season began Sunday, the first day of June, and runs through November. The first tropical storm of the season, Arthur, didn't wait for the start of the season. It formed Saturday and quickly made landfall at the Belize-Mexico border.
Federal forecasters in May said there was a good chance the Atlantic season would produce 12 to 16 named storms and two to five major hurricanes. They put the probability of that outcome at 60 to 70 percent. Overall they said there's a 90 percent chance the season will be normal or above average.
