July 22, 2005|From Times Wire Reports

The busy Atlantic hurricane season marked its sixth tropical storm when Franklin formed near the northern Bahamas.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said the birth of Franklin marked the earliest appearance by the sixth storm of the season in recorded history. The previous earliest date for six storms was Aug. 4, 1933.

Forecasters said Franklin could drop up to 5 inches of rain on Eleuthera, Great Abaco and other islands in the northwestern Bahamas and eventually threaten U.S. coastal areas.
