ABSTRACT
The article reports that as Florida Governor Jeb Bush marked the end of "the most traumatic hurricane season in Florida history" during a statewide telecast Tuesday night, Tropical Storm Otto developed in the far Atlantic. The June through November period is a guideline used by forecasters to predict the hurricane season and latecomer Otto was not expected to be a threat to the U.S. The four hurricanes that struck Florida during the peak of the storm season this year caused more than $42 billion in damage and resulted in 1.5 million insurance claims.
