It took a while but the first named storm of the season has finally formed in the Atlantic.< Ana is still coping with moderate wind shear and some dry air so it will be slowly strenghtening according to our best model estimates. The storm initial coordinates are 14.6N 46.8W, if your tracking the storm on a Channel 11 Preparedeness Guide. You can pick one up at any Randalls store or Carpet Giant location. In cooperation with our sponsor Centerpoint Energy we have assembled some valuable information to get you ready for this years Hurricane season. Noticing the track of this storm and another storm on the heels of Ana, it's never too early to be prepared. Notice the second system next to Ana is much larger with enough circulation to call it a tropical depression. It is our third in the series this year and will most likely develope into a Hurricane within the next 3 - 5 days. Tropical Depression #3 will be impacted by light to moderate wind shear and move into warmer waters as it churns towards the Lesser Antilles next week.
