Noted hurricane forecaster William Gray of Colorado State University says the rest of this year's hurricane season should be calmer. That's good news to people in Florida who've endured four hurricanes - and to the insurance industry, which is facing up to $23 billion in insured losses. Gray issued an update of his predictions on October 1. "Although we forecast an above-average 2004 forecast, there is no way we or anyone else could have foreseen the amount of Atlantic basin hurricane activity that occurred in August and September and the huge impact this would have on southeastern United States residents," Gray said.  The Atlantic hurricane season ends November 30.
