Meteorological history Edit

Cam2030Bob

The track of Cam, according to the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale.

On August 2, a tropical wave exited the African coast. Two days later, it was upgraded into Tropical Depression Three while located just southwest of Cape Verde. Quickly moving and rapidly intensifying, Three intensified into a tropical storm later that evening and was named Cam. On August 6, Cam became a category 1 hurricane with 80 mph winds. The next day, Cam became a category 3, and eventually a category 4 hurricane. On August 8, Cam's winds reached 165 mph - becoming a category 5 hurricane. Rapidly moving, Cam absorbed nearby Tropical Storm Debby while accelerating westward. Cam then weakened slightly to a category 4 on August 9, but regained its category 5 status the next day. Cam would retain its category 5 status for nearly a week, peaking with 185 mph winds on August 15.

On August 18, Cam made landfall in Texas. However, due to the Brown Ocean Effect, Cam remained very strong, and retained its hurricane intensity for a long time. Cam caused torrential rains and flooding over the city of Denver, totaling over 100 deaths in Denver alone. On August 21, Cam dissipated near Omaha.
