See this short article on Tropical Storm Gonzalo sets a record as it churns toward the Caribbean.

The record is this, "This is the earliest that a storm has received a name starting with the letter "G" since the United States began using a named-storm system in 1953. On average, the 7th named storm in a season is on September 16."

It was also noted that, "The active part of hurricane season is still a few weeks away and it looks likely we will have the busy season experts have been predicting."

Only 19 more to go to get to Zarathustra!
