Zeta no threat to land

The 27th named storm of the 2005 tropical season churns far out in Atlantic.

BY DISASTER NEWS NETWEK | BALTIMORE | January 2, 2006

Tropical Storm Zeta, the 27th named storm of the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season, continued to move slowly southwest Monday, but is not a threat to land.

Most forecasters predict the storm which formed Friday will dissipate during the next 36 hours as it interacts with strong westerlies. It remains far out in the eastern Atlantic Ocean.

The 2005 Atlantic Hurricane Season was already a record-breaker before Zeta formed, with 26 named storms - including 13 hurricanes. Seven of those hurricanes became intense hurricanes.

The 2005 season was also the first time since 1851 that three category five storms occurred within one season.
