Hyping the Weather

It seems that there is some internet hype about a huge hurricane about to ravage the Gulf Coast, and it's certainly the season for that, but the weather map simply doesn't support it.
The National Hurricane Center warns of an "increase in Internet hype" surrounding non-credible predictions popping up online.
There's always hurricane hype this time of ye ar and your best source for hurricane information is the National Hurricane Center, who says this today.
There's one little disturbance out there that they are watching.  It has a chance to become a tropical storm, but it's way to soon to know if it will become a hurricane.  Certainly, keep a weather eye out, but don't believe everything you read on the internet.

Yep, at least with hurricanes you get 'adequate' warning... Unlike tornadoes...
