The 2009 Atlantic hurricane season begins in less than a week. Most forecasts for this year predict a near normal season for the number of named storms. Regardless if its a normal, above normal, or below normal season, it only takes one powerful storm to create havoc. A storm could impact the Carolina coast and inland areas of the Carolinas with damaging winds, flooding rains, and tornadoes.
