Hurricane Humberto off the coast of Africa, near the Cape Verde Islands.
It is official! We have the first hurricane of the 2013 Hurricane Season. Humberto strengthened to hurricane status early this morning (as of the 5am update), one day after the peak of the season.
Humberto also ties a record for the latest hurricane to form in the Atlantic since 1967. Hurricane Gustav formed in the Atlantic on the same day in 2002.
