Colorado State University Professor William Gray had forecast an above-average season for 1997, but it was one of the quietest in years; Gray cited El Nifio, called one of the most powerful climate events this century. For 1998, Gray predicts nine tropical storms. He says five will become hurricanes and two intense hurricanes with winds of 111 mph or more. An average season produces about nine storms, about six hurricanes and about two intense hurricanes. Gray doesnot predict whether any storms will strike land. "It is our belief (El Nifio) will die before or shortly after the 1998 hurricane season begins," but it's too early to know what effect the waning event will have, Gray said metes and Ordinance Np. 2766, which includes a .complete legal description by bounds, may be obtained from the City Clerk's Office. 600 West Blue He CU. .lo.
