Bertha sets a new record

Postby treeWoof » Sat Jul 19, 2008 12:25 pm

"Hurricane Bertha is now the longest-lived July hurricane on record (and the longest-lived hurricane so early in the season). Bertha has been a hurricane 7.5 days, which eclipses the previous record of 7 days held by Hurricane Emily of 2005. Bertha is also the longest-lived tropical storm on record for July (and for so early in the season), as well as the farthest east forming tropical storm and hurricane for so early in the season. I find it amazing we've had a July storm that has lasted nearly 17 days! Bertha's days are numbered, though. Bertha will reach cold water less than 70°F by Sunday, which should finally kill it."
