StormsEdit

Tropical Storm AnitaEdit

Tropical storm (SSHS)
Counterclockwise vortex
Duration June 7 – June 10
Intensity 50 mph (85 km/h) (1-min),  996 mbar (hPa)

The storm stayed out at sea, causing no known impacts whilst active.


Hurricane BennieEdit

Category 3 hurricane (SSHS)
Counterclockwise vortex
Duration June 29 – July 5
Intensity 120 mph (195 km/h) (1-min),  945 mbar (hPa)

A category 3 hurricane that formed near Cuba, before it hit Florida at peak intensity, killing 14 people, and causing $67 billion in damages, before moving out into the Atlantic and dissipating 3 days later due to increased shear and cooler sea surface temperatures.


Hurricane CarolineEdit

Category 5 hurricane (SSHS)
Counterclockwise vortex
Duration July 17 – July 29
Intensity 165 mph (270 km/h) (1-min),  909 mbar (hPa)

This category 5 hurricane formed off the Ivory Coast, and explosively deepened before hitting the Lesser Antilles at peak intensity. After hitting the islands, the cyclone weakened to a tropical storm due to shear, but still regained category 3 status before making landfall in Nicaragua, and crossing out into the East Pacific as a tropical storm, where it again intensified into a category 5 major hurricane before it weakened and dissipated 12 days later. 767 deaths were recorded during the Atlantic phase of the storms lifecycle, with $17.25 billion being done in damages in the process.


Hurricane DamienEdit

Category 4 hurricane (SSHS)
Counterclockwise vortex
Duration July 24 – July 31
Intensity 145 mph (230 km/h) (1-min),  937 mbar (hPa)

This category 4 hurricane developed over the Lesser Antilles, before moving out into the Caribbean, where it explosively deepened to reach peak winds of 145 mph, before making landfall in Cuba as a category 2, and weakening to a tropical depression during the crossover. The system went on to enter the Gulf of Mexico, where it made landfall as a tropical depression on July 31st, weakening to a remnant low in the process.


Tropical Storm EmiliaEdit

Tropical storm (SSHS)
Counterclockwise vortex
Duration August 6 – August 9
Intensity 45 mph (75 km/h) (1-min),  999 mbar (hPa)

A brief tropical storm, yet had devastating effects in the Lesser Antilles as it passed through the islands. The storm was hit by strong shear on August 9th, which resulted in a speedy extratropical transition, which completed the following day. 41 people died, and damages reached $4.42 billion from the storm.


Subtropical Storm FernandoEdit

Tropical storm (SSHS)
Counterclockwise vortex
Duration August 19 – August 22
Intensity 40 mph (65 km/h) (1-min),  1010 mbar (hPa)

A subtropical storm that developed near the Azores made landfall on the islands during August 20 - 21, and turned extratropical the following day. Its remnants went on to affect the UK 4 days later, bringing severe thunderstorms to the country as a result of its tropical origins. 2 people died, and $3 million was done in damages form the system whilst it was active.


Hurricane GracieEdit

Category 5 hurricane (SSHS)
Counterclockwise vortex
Duration September 12 – September 28
Intensity 245 mph (400 km/h) (1-min),  823 mbar (hPa)

This devastating hurricane developed from a tropical wave that had moved off the Ivory Coast, and proceeded to reach a peak wind speed of 250 mph, with a pressure of 823 mbar as it hit Cuba. The storm weakened to a category 4 before making another landfall in Florida with 155 mph winds. The system then travelled up the East Coast, slowly weakening as it did so, becoming extratropical as a storm force low in the Irish Sea on September 28th as a a result. 19,217 people died in the storm, with $221 billion being done in damages as a result of the storm.


Hurricane HarveyEdit

Category 4 hurricane (SSHS)
