SO LONG, IRENE. The ninth tropical storm of the young 2005 hurricane season finally veered northeast after swirling to within a few hundred miles of the Atlantic coast of the United States. Irene will pose no threat for landfall and, headed into the much colder waters of the north Atlantic, she is likely to spin herself out over the next few days. The National Hurricane Center notes that this is the earliest in the summer in recorded history to have had nine tropical storms form in the Atlantic and Caribbean regions. What's with that?
