RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Virginians who want to stock up on batteries, bottled water and other supplies for the hurricane season will get a tax break starting Saturday.

A sales tax holiday will spare residents state and local levies for items that also include flashlights, first-aid kits, and bigger-ticket items such as generators priced at $1,000 or less. The tax holiday runs through May 31.

U.S. government forecasters announced Thursday they expect three to six major hurricanes from another busy Atlantic storm season.
