An End to the 2019 Hurricane Season
This hurricane season has finally come to an end. While we were spared major damage in our area, we will remember this storm season to be active and full of surprises.
The 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season ran from June 1st until November 30th. This season we saw 18 named storms in the region. 6 of these storms went on to become hurricanes while 3 reached major hurricane status (attaining a Category 3 status or higher: Dorian, Humberto, and Lorenzo). Eleven storms during this season had effects on land, while the others kept their destruction at sea.
Of the storms this season, the most memorable and impactful of all was Hurricane Dorian. Dorian showed that the strength of a Category 5 hurricane, mixed with a slow-moving storm, creates a decimating combination that hit the Bahamas with the most unimaginable destruction. While numbers are not confirmed, early estimates showed Hurricane Dorian killed at least 67 people and did $2.5 Billion in damage in the Bahamas.
The End of the Season is Here.
