— reported by KHOU CBS Channel 11

The Atlantic hurricane season that starts Thursday will be active, but it shouldn’t be as destructive as last year’s record-setting season, one of the nation’s top hurricane forecasters said Wednesday.

The latest forecast from William Gray’s team at Colorado State University calls for 17 named storms for the 2006 season. Nine storms are expected to become hurricanes, and five of those are expected to have winds of 111 mph or greater, the forecasters said.
