Tropical Storm Alberto forms in the Atlantic

Tropical Storm Alberto, the first named storm of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season, formed Saturday off the coast of South Carolina.

As of 5 p.m., the storm was located about 140 miles east-southeast of Charleston, South Carolina, with maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour, the Miami-based National Hurricane Center said.

It was churning southwest at 3 mph.

No coastal watches or warning were in effect, though a tropical storm watch could be issued for parts of the coast later Saturday, the Hurricane Center said.

    @bobcat have you noticed certain brands of shampoo are watered down these days? when was the last time that happened? the last time that happened was during the great depression. face it we are in a depression now. the unemployment was never this high under bush. the gas prices were never this high under bush. my electric bill was never this high under bush. imports and exports have steadily declined under obama. you seriously need to take a better look around. obama is even worse for the economy than bush.
