Bertha first hurricane of the season

The first hurricane of the 2008 season has formed in the Atlantic today. Hurricane Bertha's maximum sustained winds reached 90 mph this morning and are expected to increase over the next 24 hours. To watch the hurricane track and get more information on the speeds, check out the Bertha section of the NOAA web site.

Want to know all the names of the hurricanes/tropical cyclones this year? Check out the name list. The names alternate between male and female names and the list is reused every seven years, unless a "storm is so deadly or costly that the future use of its name on a different storm would be inappropriate for reasons of sensitivity."
