Seasonal Summary

1979fivestorms

Category 4 Hurricane Greg (Impacting Haiti), Weak Category 1 Hurricane Hannah (Following behind Greg) and a Forming Tropical Depression which would later become Hurricane Isaac (Gulf) in the Atlantic Basin on July 6th, 65,000

The 65,000 Atlantic hurricane season will be an event in the annual cycle of tropical cyclone formation. The season officially started on June 1 and ended on November 30, though due to extreme activity it effectively persisted until New Years Eve; these dates conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the Atlantic basin. However, the formation of tropical cyclones is possible at any time.

This season was one of the most Active Atlantic hurricane season ever seen. Witnessing the formation of 65 Named storms, 54 hurricanes and 40 Major. A record 20 of these Major hurricanes became Category-5+ storms, a record 11 went on to reach Category-6 (6 to 8), a record 4 went on to become hypercanes and One storm went on to become a Super Hypercane.

This season also became one of the most destructive on record to have damages in the Trillions and also one of the deadliest on record, becoming one of probably only a few to have Fatalities in the Millions. In Addition, due to Extreme activity, the entire main List of names had to be used, the entire greek alphabet had to be used and all but one storm name from a Back-Up list of names had to be used.

The Reason for this Extreme activity was record low Dry air, almost no wind shear though certain parts of the season, and record hot SSTs which ranged between 88 and 123 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Strongest Storm in this Season was Super Hypercane Beta, with a Record Strong 1,100 mph winds and a minimum pressure of 469 millibars, While the weakest storm of the season was Tropical Storm Otto which only was 40 mph winds and a Pressure of 1001 millibars.

Despite forecasts, the most activity called for the season was 45 storms, this was well surpassed by an additional 20 Storms, which was rather unprecedented.

And the most active month of the season was, and surprisingly, November, which spawned off a record 15 storms in the month, one of the being a rare November Hypercane.
