Already off to a precocious start, the 2016 Atlantic hurricane season is likely to be friskier - and perhaps more destructive and costly - than those of some recent years, according to government forecasters. They also are offering, however, a potential silver lining for coastal residents, who own about $10 trillion worth of property, and U.S. taxpayers. Global warming aside, the Atlantic Basin might be undergoing a benign sea change that could mean generally less-active seasons for perhaps the next 20 years or more.

Pressure, what pressure? The Sabres trail the Eastern Conference final series, 3-2, to Carolina, but Buffalo coach Lindy Ruff did his best yesterday to gain a psychological edge. "The pressure falls on them," Ruff said of the top-seeded Hurricanes. "Oh, you'd hate to lose Game 6 and have to play Game 7. You'd never want to get in that situation because in one game, anything can happen. " Hurricanes coach Peter Laviolette wasn't biting. Carolina can advance to the Stanley Cup finals against Edmonton with a win tonight in Game 6 at Buffalo.

AUSTIN, Texas - Shane Larkin hit a go-ahead three-pointer with a minute left and Miami gained possession on a ball knocked out of bounds that probably should have gone to Illinois, helping the Hurricanes hold on for a 63-59 victory Sunday night to advance to the NCAA round of 16. After Larkin's first field goal in about 9 1/2 minutes, D.J. Richardson missed a three-pointer. In the fight for the rebound, the ball appeared to ricochet off the hands of Miami's Kenny Kadji out of bounds.

Villa Maria coach Kathy McCartney had to admit that she didn't think her team was going to win Wednesday night, not after Lansdale Catholic jumped to a 9-2 lead, not after the Crusaders were leading by 11 after one quarter, not after her Hurricanes had shot 4 for 14 in the first 8 minutes. "It looked like we were going to be in for a long night," McCartney said. "It looked like it was going to be a very long night. " Instead, it turned out to be a night to remember for McCartney and her team.

Villa Maria's triangle-and-two defense was like the Bermuda Triangle. Top- seeded Lansdale Catholic's offense disappeared for a half, and the Crusaders were in danger of losing their PIAA Class AAA semifinal playoff game at Conestoga on Wednesday. But the Crusaders found their offense in time to post a 63-42 win over the No. 5-seeded Hurricanes. Villa Maria lost to Unionville, 66-54, in the consolation game Saturday and will meet District 2 champion Honesdale in the first round of the state playoffs tomorrow at Dunmore High School.

RALEIGH, N.C. - The Carolina Hurricanes capitalized on their ability to get fortuitous bounces to grab a two-games-to-none advantage over the New Jersey Devils. Defenseman Niclas Wallin scored against Martin Brodeur 3 minutes, 9 seconds into overtime as the Hurricanes posted a 3-2 victory last night over the Devils and opened a commanding lead in their Eastern Conference semifinal. Wallin had the puck knocked off his stick by defenseman Paul Martin during a rush, but it bounced off Wallin's skate and through Brodeur's legs.

The Villa Maria basketball players could have called it a season after an emotional 46-44 loss to arch-rival Merion Mercy in the first round of the Catholic Academies League playoffs Tuesday. Instead, the Hurricanes decided to make their season last a little longer. "No doubt about it, that loss helped us tonight," Villa point guard Helen Hoban said after the Hurricanes beat Pottsgrove, 40-34, in the PIAA Class AAA playoffs Friday night. "We had something to prove. " The Hurricanes proved that they had the emotional fortitude to put their second straight playoff loss to Merion Mercy behind them and became one of the four District 1 teams to qualify for the state playoffs in the process.

Deadly accuracy from the free-throw line and hand-in-the-face defense lifted Gwynedd-Mercy to a 21-point lead after three quarters and a fairly easy 55-42 victory over Villa Maria in the quarterfinal round of PIAA District 1 Class AAA action. The Mustangs (23-0) took control late in the first half Saturday at Methacton High School and did not relinquish it. Trailing 16-13 with two minutes left in the second quarter, Gwynedd-Mercy went on a 13-5 run to take a 26-21 lead at intermission.

The No. 18 Louisville Cardinals drew a flag for excessive celebration in the second quarter, and another in the third. Against Miami, the displays of jubilation were premature. Led by Brock Berlin and Devin Hester, the third-ranked Hurricanes erased a 17-point deficit over the final 20 minutes and came from behind twice in the fourth quarter to beat visiting Louisville, 41-38, last night. Berlin threw three touchdown passes and directed the winning drive, a 56-yard march capped by Frank Gore's 1-yard run with 49 seconds left.

Rating Miami's two wins over St. John's this season wasn't hard at all for Johnny Hemsley. "It was tremendous getting them at home, winning at Miami Arena," he said last night after scoring 29 points in the 25th-ranked Hurricanes' 73-70 victory over No. 9 St. John's. "But this. This was in New York at Madison Square Garden. We came out and did a great job. " The Hurricanes outscored the Red Storm, 14-3, over the final 51/2 minutes for the series sweep. They are the only non-Top 10 team to beat St. John's this season.

Bill Gray Hurricane expert, 86 Bill Gray, 86, a pioneer in hurricane forecasting, died Saturday in Fort Collins, Colo., according to his longtime assistant. Phil Klotzbach said Dr. Gray began researching hurricanes in 1984, long before national hurricane forecasters began publishing their forecasts. "His research on hurricanes was remarkable. He was one of the first researchers to determine why hurricanes were global, looking at water-temperature patterns and wind shear," Klotzbach said.

Here is a look at Thursday's NCAA South Regional semifinal, set to tip off at 7:10 p.m. Villanova keys The Wildcats excelled last weekend in winning their first two NCAA games by an average of 24.5 points. They shot 58.6 percent from the field and 48.9 percent from three-point range and held the opponent to 41 percent shooting. So it's a matter of making Miami off balance by keeping its defense stretched out with the threat of the three-point shot while driving to the hoop on occasion.

RALEIGH, N.C. - The Flyers played one of their best games of the season Tuesday. Their forececk was superb. Ditto their cycle. And they spent the night camped in the Carolina zone, outshooting the Hurricanes, 37-18. No matter. Carolina 3, Flyers 1. Veteran goalie Cam Ward allowed a soft first-period goal but rebounded and led Carolina to the win at sparsely filled PNC Arena. The Flyers allowed just 18 shots - equaling a season-low for an opponent - but they couldn't finish their chances as Ward made 36 saves, including an acrobatic one on Matt Read.

IN AN EFFORT to familiarize his team with the history of the Palestra and the city in which sophomore guard Ja'Quan Newton made headlines, Miami coach Jim Larranaga had one of his graduate assistant coaches put together a video for the 13th-ranked Hurricanes to watch before coming to Philadelphia to take on La Salle. "A lot of our players had heard of Madison Square Garden, but they never really heard of the Palestra," said Larranaga, who played at the Palestra with his alma mater, Providence College, in 1969.

Jake Voracek, playing left wing for the first time in four years, seemed to find a new home on Tuesday night. Voracek had a goal, two assists and seven shots as the Flyers outlasted the Carolina Hurricanes, 4-3, in overtime at the Wells Fargo Center. Voracek set up Shayne Gostisbehere for the game-winner with 3 minutes, 18 seconds left in OT, slipping a slick backhand pass to the rookie on a two-on-one. The winning sequence developed after Gostisbehere broke up Carolina's two-on-two.

THE QUESTIONS asked of Dave Hakstol on the morning of Monday's game against Carolina were expectedly centered on the team's scoring drought. "You guys are all talking about the scoring," the Flyers coach started to say. He was cut off and reminded that his team was last in the NHL entering play Monday night against Carolina. "You guys are all talking about the scoring," he repeated. "And absolutely, that is an issue, we haven't scored a goal in two games. " Hakstol went on to talk about getting some of the finer details in check defensively, including the Flyers' play without the puck, and the way the Flyers were giving up goals recently.

On one sideline, pure joy. On the other, utter defeat. For Villa Maria on Saturday, it was the latter, as the Hurricanes lost to Twin Valley, 3-1, in the PIAA State Class AA field hockey final. Defending its title, Villa Maria came out of the gates quickly at Whitehall High School, swarming the opposing Raiders, and controlling the ball for the first minutes of the match. The only problem for the Hurricanes was they couldn't find the stroke that would give them the lead.

RALEIGH, N.C. - Right winger Jake Voracek couldn't have scored his first goal of the season at a more opportune time, capping a furious late comeback Saturday night that gave the Flyers a stunning victory at PNC Arena. Just 37 seconds into overtime, Voracek redirected Michael Del Zotto's slap-pass past Cam Ward to lift the Flyers past Carolina, 3-2, and end his 19-game goalless streak. It was his first goal in 17 games this season. "It's a big weight off my shoulders," said Voracek, who finished fourth in the NHL with 81 points last season.

Inquirer staff photographer Clem Murray, on vacation at a Mexican resort, suddenly found himself and a companion in the path of Hurricane Patricia. Without time to evacuate, they hoped for the best. We left our room a little after 2 p.m. Friday and were escorted about 100 yards to the back of our resort, the Grand Mayan in Nuevo Vallarta, to an immense concrete building that looked like a parking garage, rising five levels. The building indeed housed cars but was also home to numerous departments of the Vidanta Resorts, including the executive offices, accounting, telemarketing and one level for the maintenance department.
