MIAMI — With the clock running down, an otherwise unremarkable and unthreatening tropical storm named Humberto fell just short of making history today.

The National Hurricane Center announced at 5 a.m. that Humberto had reached hurricane strength, leaving it only No. 2 on the list of the latest-forming hurricanes. Gustav, which was declared a hurricane at 8 a.m., Sept. 11, 2002, retained the record by three hours.
