The season’s first Atlantic tropical storm

Published on June 6th, 2013

(June 6, 2013) – The season’s first Atlantic tropical storm had already spawned tornadoes in Florida and threatened to fuel more twisters on Thursday night, after making landfall over the Big Bend area, where the Florida peninsula joins the mainland. Andrea will likely remain a tropical storm for a day or two, hugging the shore and bringing heavy rain and gales to Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. By Saturday, Andrea was expected to merge with a frontal system and morph into a Nor’easter as it moved over the northeastern U.S. coast and Nova Scotia. – Reuters, full story
