An average season in the Atlantic Ocean produces 12 named storms, six of which become hurricanes, including three major hurricanes; however, 2017 was the fifth most active season since the records about these events exist.

Some areas got over four feet of water, which was the most rainfall amount from a single storm in the continental US.

"17 named storms is tied for the ninth busiest season, ten hurricanes is tied for the eighth most hurricanes in a season and six major hurricanes is tied for the fourth most major hurricanes since 1851".

Conditions were ripe for the formation of so many strong systems, said Klotzbach, pointing to warmer-than-normal sea surface temperatures and the tropical Atlantic's lack of vertical wind shear, which can tear systems apart before they have a chance to form.

37 hours with wind speeds of 185 mph.
