  • Hurricane season comes to a peaceful end for Cancun Riviera Maya

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. Harvey was the first major storm to hit the USA since Wilma hit Florida in October of 2005. And for the first time ever, three reached Category 4 status: Harvey, Irma and Maria. Hurricanes Nate and Tropical Storms Cindy and Harvey made landfall in Louisiana this year. "Parts of the Sunshine State remain in recovery from the 2017 Hurricane Season, and these funds will help Floridians in the midst of that process".

The territory was hit by two category 5 hurricanes and a tropical wave. The 2017 hurricane season was also the first on record to have two Category 4 hurricanes hit the U.S.in the same year (Harvey and Irma).

A trio of major hurricanes hit United States soil in 2017.

According to a report from Bloomberg News, the hit to the USA was $202.6 billion in damages, with the death count in the "hundreds across the Atlantic basin".

The 2017 Atlantic hurricane season may be a wrap, but it's not going to be forgotten anytime soon.

Dr. Jesse Spearo, with Cape Coral Emergency Management, said they were pleased with the season's predictions, and forecast modeling has vastly improved from years past, but there is always room for improvement.

Hurricane Irma of course had the most direct impact on Southwest Florida, making landfall near Marco Island on September 10 and traveling north across the state.

"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.

Perhaps the oddest of all was a Groundhog Day tropical storm which carved across South Florida in 1952, the only February U.S. tropical storm or hurricane landfall on record. We also saw 7 tropical storms mostly at the beginning and end of the season. Together, these satellites will provide a significant boost to hurricane monitoring for the 2018 season.
