Because Igor is now a tropical storm.

Igor is not much of a storm yet, and is showing no clear pattern of increased intensification. However, Igor’s current path will take the storm through a region where there will be very little to weaken it and a great deal of very warm water to strengthen it. There is a possibility that Igor will drift to the north, which would cause the storm to weaken. If not, there is a high potential of a large and powerful hurricane. Details.

    If you have read Pratchett´s “Discworld” novels, you know Igors are a respected, useful part of society, although they may sometimes have too many body parts attached (if the late uncle Frim had a perfectly good left hand, it would be a shame to waste it).

    Scene from “the Super”:
    Radio: “The new hurricane has been named “El Negro”
    Thurgood: “Yes! They have finally named something after us black folks!”
    Radio: “El Negro is estimated to become the most destructive hurricane of this century”
    Thurgood: “DAMN!!!”
