Bertha Born

Off the coast of Africa. Headed for nowhere. Hurricane-starved Florida local news makes it lead story despite distance away and no threat to US. It does set a record as the earliest tropical storm to form that far East in the Atlantic. Typically Africa spawns storms starting in August. Having one this early in the season could be a bad sign!

The last Bertha was in 1996 and hit North Carolina.
