Tropical Storm Chantal... she's been fighting to strengthen but has had to deal with a poorly organized center and outside wind shear... but Chantal is still expected to become a hurricane, but probably not until tomorrow. Right now she sits in the Caribbean moving to the west at 16 miles an hour heading towards the Yucatan peninsula with top winds very close to Hurricane strength. Chantal is 380 miles east-southeast of Mexico and Hurricane watches are in effect from Cancun to Belize.
Closer to home, we are dealing with a strong line of storms spanning the entire stat of Virginia moving to the east. Some of these storms are dropping half an inch in 30 minutes and some contain gusts of about 30 miles an hour. Patrick County is currently under a flash flood warning. But the stormy weather should be moving out of our region sometime after midnight.
Tomorrow we look forward to partly sunny skies with just a small chance for scattered afternoon showers, maybe a passing storm with temperatures sitting in the eighties. The seven day planner is coming up in just a moment.[Wildfires

For surfers off the coast of Daytona Beach Florida - it was anything but good vibrations.

Under the waves - bullsharks and blacktips - so many surfers were jumping over the sharks, just to catch a wave.

Three didn't jump high enough and were bitten -- mistaken for food.

(SOT/JOE WOODEN, VOLUSIA COUNTY BEACH PATROL 15:30:56)

"Having three bites in one day is pretty tough, and that's why we've made the decision to close that section of beach down."

(NARR)


But it wasn't enough -- today three victims MORE victims near the very same beach -- six attacks in two days.

(SOT/ERICA LOUGHLIN, WITNESS 16:10:24)

"Someone called 911 -- they had her foot wrapped up in a towel and she was bleeding."

(NARR:)


They are the latest in a string of highly publicized attacks this summer. From 8 year old Jesse Arbogast who's arm was torn away by this 8 foot bullshark -- to the Wall Street banker who lost his leg - and nearly his life in the Bahamas.
It's become so prevelant a headline -- the season now even has a nickname: the "Summer of the Shark."

(SOT/MOS 01:22:09)

"No doubt about it. I've been scared ever since the movie Jaws so, since I was a kid."

(NARR:)


So what's changed? Scientists say only the attention -- Off the
coast of Sarasota last week - there were almost as many news

helicopters as there were sharks to be photographed.

(SOT/ROBERT HEUTER, SHARK RESEARCHER 01:18:57)

"A helicopter pilot goes up, takes some video and you see the animals out there and all of a sudden, people think the risk has gone up. It hasn't gone up."

(NARR:)


The number of attacks has risen -- but so has the number of people in the water. For lifeguards like Tom Mcloughlin -- it's a constant battle to calm fears.

(SOT/TOM MCLOUGHLIN, LIFEGUARD 01:02:33)

Lee: It still may be very rare, but you still have to prepare for the worst? A: Oh sure, because just once, just once shark sighting will cause a real stir." ))
