Does it seem like Bertha has been around for a long time? Nope - not even close - at least not yet. This evening NHC will issue Bulletin number 40 on Bertha, and if she hangs around for another week she might get up to Bulletin number 70. Here are some others that exceeded 70:

IVAN - Sept, 2004 - 73 (6-hour) bulletins
MARILYN - Sept/Oct, 1995 - 75 bulletins
MITCH - Oct/Nov, 1998 - 76 bulletins
ALBERTO - Aug, 2000 - 78 bulletins
ARLENE - Aug, 1987 - 81 bulletins
KYLE - Sept/Oct, 2002 - 89 bulletins
CARRIE - Sept, 1957 - 91 bulletins (pre-satellite era)
INGA - Sept/Oct, 1969 - 99 bulletins

Finally there was GINGER that lasted a month and had one of the most unusual tracks ever recorded - September 6 to October 5, 1971 - 118 bulletins.
