Amid very favorable conditions, Amanda then rapidly intensified late on May 23, eventually reaching its peak intensity on May 25 as a high-end Category 4 hurricane. [citation needed], Hurricane Joan killed 148 people in Nicaragua and 68 others in affected nations. Noon temperatures (degrees Fahrenheit) recorded on board 11 U.S. Navy ships from Louisiana to northern Florida on 26–30 May, centered on the date of the landfall of Hurricane Amanda on 28 May. However, a front approached from the northwest and reversed the storm's course into southeastern Louisiana. Hurricane Amanda Green 8/19/08 Danny Mcguire. The next day a low level circulation was detected by satellite, indicating that a tropical depression was forming. An Air Force reconnaissance check of tropical weather on October 19 spotted the depression near Colombia's Guajira Peninsula. Afterwards, steady weakening occurred due to upwelling beneath the storm, and Amanda fell below major hurricane intensity on May 26. [60] The hurricane damage in Nicaragua amounted to half of the $1.87 billion total. [16], The third tropical depression of the season formed on August 7 from a surface low over southeastern Louisiana. [13], On May 25, Amanda became the second-earliest East Pacific major hurricane on record, behind 2012's Hurricane Bud. With very warm sea surface temperatures of near 30 °C (86 °F), a moist environment, and light wind shear, forecasters at the National Hurricane Center predicted that Amanda had the potential to rapidly intensify. [31] At peak intensity, the hurricane's center was just 30 mi (48 km) from the coast. However, later that day, Helene weakened back to a Category 1 hurricane while accelerating to the northeast. [4] Overall damage was widespread but fairly minor, totaling about $7.3 million. [3], Chris formed from a strong tropical wave that moved off the west coast of Africa on August 15. [5] The Statistical Hurricane Intensity Prediction Scheme (SHIPS) rapid intensification index predicted a 60 percent chance that Amanda's wind speeds would increase by 45 mph (72 km/h) in 24 hours, which was about 15 times higher than the average possibility. Hurricane Diana September 13, 1984 . Table 1. Collection of USA Today Network stories, photos and videos. Though the surface low remained poorly defined and separate from the convection, the system became a tropical depression on September 3. [15][16] On August 8 Alberto became extratropical over the cold waters of the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. [3] News reports blamed Tropical Depression Eighteen and other tropical systems for bringing swarms of pink locusts from Africa to Trinidad and other Caribbean nations. [3] However, the depression degenerated a few hours later when it merged with the cold front that had caused its acceleration. [9] Much of Michoacán was battered by large waves and heavy rains, resulting in two casualties. However, a more rapid phase of weakening began due to increasing wind shear and decreasing sea surface temperatures of less than 24 °C (75 °F). [32] Heavy thunderstorms spawned a tornado in South Carolina that resulted in another death. Helene began to turn to the northwest on September 21 due to a major trough in the eastern Atlantic. [4], A broad low pressure area formed in the western Gulf of Mexico on September 2 and quickly developed through the next day. [4][65] Keith restrengthened over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico and struck near Sarasota, Florida, on November 23. With little change in intensity, Debby made landfall near Tuxpan, Veracruz, six hours later. [63] In an unusual occurrence the disturbance developed into the 18th tropical depression about 500 mi (800 km) behind the powerful hurricane. [50] The depression tracked westward at 15 to 20 mph (32 km/h) but weakened rapidly. On August 7 the system was designated Tropical Storm Alberto at 41.5°N, while located just south of Nantucket, Massachusetts, becoming the northernmost system to intensify into a tropical storm on record. Hurricane Hub. [25] Because of unfavorable upper level conditions and interaction with Bahama islands, the system lost its well defined center as it moved towards Florida's east coast. Hurricane Archive. It is estimated that the storm became Tropical Depression Eight just offshore at around 12 p.m. local time. Decreased wind shear in August allowed tropical waves to develop into tropical cyclones. Storm surge is caused when winds from an approaching hurricane push water towards the shoreline up to 20ft above sea level and can extend 100 miles. [6][7] ACE is, broadly speaking, a measure of the power of the hurricane multiplied by the length of time it existed, so storms that last a long time, as well as particularly strong hurricanes, have high ACEs. [64] The system gradually dissipated on October 21 while Joan was experiencing rapid strengthening just before its arrival on the coast of Nicaragua. Until 2007's Hurricane Dean, it was also the most recent storm to make landfall as a Category 5 hurricane in Mexico. [20] The next morning Beryl had weakened to a tropical depression as it moved over the Bayou Teche. [4] The storm rapidly weakened over southeastern Louisiana and lost all its deep convection as it passed over the New Orleans area. The rapid intensification eventually leveled off with Amanda reaching its peak intensity at 12:00 UTC that day as a high-end Category 4 hurricane on the Saffir–Simpson scale. [1] The first named storm, hurricane and major hurricane of the 2014 Pacific hurricane season, Amanda originated from a tropical wave that had entered the Eastern Pacific on May 16. The tropical cyclone did not directly impact landmasses, however it had indirect impacts along the coast of Mexico. Later that day, based on observations from aircraft reconnaissance, Debby was upgraded to a hurricane. It crossed the Guajira Peninsula on October 17 and quickly attained hurricane strength just 30 mi (48 km) from the coast. [4] Westerly vertical wind shear prevented deep convection at the center of the storm. [3], Steered by a subtropical ridge over central Mexico,[1] Amanda slowly moved westward against the southern periphery of the ridge. Moving westward, the wave changed little in organization until May 19, when a broad surface low formed about 500 mi (805 km) south of Acapulco. 52nd Fact you probably didn't know - Amelia Island is home to one of the most successful treasure research and recovery companies in the U.S. Amelia Research & Recovery, LLC specializes in recovery of the treasure from sunken Spanish Galleons, most specifically the ships lost in the hurricane that sunk the entire 1715 fleet headed from Havana to Spain. [69][71] Damage near the coast occurred mainly from storm surge and beach erosion, while damage further inland was limited to flooding and downed trees and power lines. It is only calculated for full advisories on tropical systems at or exceeding 34 knots (39 mph, 63 km/h), which is tropical storm strength. By May 22, however, scatterometer data began to indicate that the system was becoming better defined, with deep convection persisting near the center, which was getting better organized. The forecast did not specify how many hurricanes would reach major hurricane status. The storm drifted north-northwest of the Cape Verde islands for the next three days with little change in strength. [48], A tropical wave with deeply organized convection crossed the coast of Africa on September 15. [19] Excessive rain fell along the central Gulf Coast, including local amounts of 16 in (410 mm) at Dauphin Island, Alabama. By 06:00 UTC on September 20, the depression was strengthened, and was upgraded to Tropical Storm Helene. Names that were not assigned are marked in gray. The hurricane crossed into the eastern Pacific Ocean and was reclassified as Tropical Storm Miriam. On September 13 the central pressure dropped 72 millibars (2.1 inHg), the fastest deepening of an Atlantic hurricane on record until 2005's Hurricane Wilma. Miriam gradually weakened until dissipating on November 2. ... Hurricane Dennis Video - Key West and Ft. Walton Beach, Florida - Duration: 5:41. [43] Upon striking Louisiana, storm surge water levels rose moderately above normal just east of where the center moved ashore. » Welcome to the Hurricane Wiki Welcome to the Hurricanes Wiki, the Wikia forum for tropical cyclone activities worldwide. Tropical Storm Cristobal made an early-season Gulf of Mexico landfall along the northern Gulf Coast in early June 2020, spreading flooding rain, a … ... Central pressure dropped to 902 mb, which was the lowest pressure observed in an Atlantic basin hurricane since Gilbert in 1988. [40] The system eventually weakened and merged with the low pressure trough. As it moved west-northwest, it became Tropical Storm Gilbert over the islands on September 9. Track Hurricane Irma. A normal season as defined by NOAA has six to fourteen named storms of which four to eight reach hurricane strength and one to three become major hurricanes. As a result, no tropical depressions formed in June or July. Keith rapidly organized and peaked with winds of 70 mph (110 km/h) before making landfall on the northeastern portion of the Yucatán Peninsula on November 21. Rainfall reached 1.78 inches (45.1 mm) in Saint John, New Brunswick,[16] most of which fell in a short amount of time. The energy hurricanes release is tremendous. [3] The wave dampened over the next 24 hours and brought heavy rain to the rest of the southeast, including a maximum of 8.4 in (210 mm) in Biloxi, Mississippi. However, the outflow of the hurricane sheared the depression and sapped its energy. No fatalities were reported.[69].

Kelsey Grammer, R Pacific Storm Amanda may become Cristobal. Votes: 46,222 On September 19 at 18:00 UTC, the system was upgraded to Tropical Depression Fourteen. On September 27 the storm became the fifteenth tropical depression of the season while it was about 265 mi (426 km) south-southeast of Cape Verde. | It is beginning to seem the Cleveland Browns can't have good things. [citation needed], On September 2 a cluster of thunderstorms associated with a northwestward-moving tropical wave developed a surface low near Bermuda. [citation needed], Tropical Depression Six developed from a tropical wave that moved off the northwest African coast on August 12. [31] The storm brought high winds, inland flooding, and mudslides and caused 10 deaths. [32] Three deaths in Puerto Rico were attributed to the weather. [11] Statewide, one person was killed when a tree that had fallen on the road resulted in a fatal car wreck. The small eye of the cyclone continued to quickly clear, and Amanda became a major hurricane by 03:00 UTC on May 25, making it the second-earliest such storm within the National Hurricane Center's area of responsibility, only to be surpassed by Hurricane Bud from 2012. [12] Several roads were destroyed in Zitácuaro. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said that Eta is now a major hurricane with maximum sustained winds of … It made landfall near Savannah, Georgia, bringing light rain and wind damage to the area. Florence and Helene were not used in 1982 but had been used in previous lists. [3] Forecasters were concerned because the depression formed in the breeding ground where other powerful East Coast hurricanes have started. Its intensity was equivalent to Category 2. [4][1] Indeed, Amanda then began a period of rapid intensification late on May 23, becoming a hurricane by 15:00 UTC on May 24. [3] Twelve depressions attained tropical storm status, and five of these attained hurricane status, of which three reached major hurricane status. [1][2] The depression gradually organized, with banding features developing near the center, and eventually was upgraded to a tropical storm on May 23, being assigned the name Amanda. All damage figures are in 1988 United States dollars, unless otherwise noted, Although Alberto intensified from a tropical depression to a tropical storm at a higher latitude than any other Atlantic system, it is not the northernmost formation of a tropical cyclone in the Atlantic. The system encountered unfavorable conditions as it moved northward toward Cuba, and a reconnaissance airplane sent to investigate it could not find a well-defined center. Hurricane Joan strengthened into a major hurricane on October 19 while drifting westward. Hurricane Diana was the fourth tropical storm, the first hurricane, and the strongest storm of the 1984 Atlantic Hurricane Season. As of Monday, the large area of disturbed weather -- the remnants of Tropical Storm Amanda from the eastern Pacific -- was over the Yucatan peninsula. Though the storm was still very weak, they initially predicted it would strengthen. [57] Summary: Josh Drain was born on 10/31/1988 and is 31 years old. The only land area affected by the storm was in the Azores, where it brought near storm-force winds to Flores Island. [9] Heavy rains occurred in Guerrero, resulting in flooding. [citation needed], A tropical wave moved off the coast of Africa on September 23. [51] On September 29 it was identified as Tropical Depression Sixteen about 900 mi (1,400 km) southeast of Barbados. [11] Flooding from the depression damaged 1,000 houses and destroyed 200 homes in Camagüey Province alone. The use of easily remembered names greatly reduces confusionwhen two or moretropical storms occur at the same time. The season produced 19 tropical depressions of which 12 attained tropical storm status. After passing through the southern Lesser Antilles, Joan traveled westward along the South American coast as a minimal tropical storm. The June through November dates conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the Atlantic basin. [7] An alert was issued for Manzanillo. [1] Amanda maintained its peak intensity for 6 hours before it began to steadily weaken due to the upwelled waters. By September 3 convection was organized enough to declare the system a tropical depression about 160 mi (260 km) west-southwest of Morgan City, Louisiana. Storms were named Gilbert, Isaac, Joan and Keith for the first (and only, in the cases of Gilbert and Joan) time in 1988. For example, one hurricane canbe moving slowly westward in the Gulf of Mexico, while at exactlythe same time another hurricane can be moving rapidly northward alongthe Atlantic coast. Slow development occurred as it tracked westward, and development into a tropical depression occurred on May 22. Earliest tropical storm formed: Subtropical Storm One, January 18, 1978, through January 23, 1978, 45 mph. On September 16, Gilbert made its final landfall in northeast Mexico near the town of La Pesca with maximum sustained winds of 125 mph (201 km/h). Hurricane Joan, striking Nicaragua as a Category 4 hurricane, caused about US$1.87 billion in damage and more than 200 deaths. It passed directly over Jamaica as a Category 3 hurricane and brought torrential rains to the island's mountainous areas. The system was forced west due to a strong ridge in the eastern Atlantic. By early on September 29, Helene briefly restrengthened into a Category 2 hurricane and reached a secondary peak of 105 mph (169 km/h). [4] The 24-, 48-, and 72-hour forecasts were the most accurate in more than 18 years and were also more accurate than in each subsequent season until 1996. [24] The system finally dissipated as it reemerged over water near the mouth of the Mississippi. The westward path of the storm shifted two degrees northward, possibly as a result of the formation of a new center. An after-the-fact review of satellite and ship reports indicated that the depression reached tropical storm-strength on September 7. Loading... Unsubscribe from Danny Mcguire? Overall damage from the storm was light, and only one known death was attributed to the storm. Hurricane Gilbert continued its northwest track and restrengthened to a minimal Category 4 hurricane. [49], After reaching peak intensity, Helene weakened as it tracked generally northward through the open Atlantic. [4][66], Early in its duration Keith produced moderate to heavy rainfall in Honduras, Jamaica, and Cuba. Gilbert's remnants turned north and eventually merged with a developing frontal low pressure system over Missouri. As Isaac approached the islands, northern parts of the Lesser Antilles were issued tropical storm warnings. The June 1988 forecast was that eleven storms would form and that seven would reach hurricane status. The storm continued to strengthen as it lost tropical characteristics. The depression later strengthened into a tropical storm on May 23. 70 mph (110 km/h) (1-min) 992 mbar ( hPa) On July 15, a tropical wave exited Africa and crossed the Atlantic Ocean. [4] Nevertheless, the storm lasted only a short time in the shearing environment. 1", "Rainfall Summary for Tropical Depression One", "Tropical Storm Alberto Preliminary Report", "Canadian Tropical Cyclone Season Summary for 1988", "Tropical Storm Beryl Preliminary Report", "Rainfall Summary for Tropical Storm Beryl", "Rainfall Summary for Tropical Depression Four", "Rainfall Summary for Tropical Storm Chris", "Tropical Storm Chris Preliminary Report", "Tropical Storm Ernesto Preliminary Report", "Rainfall Summary for Tropical Depression Ten", "Unnamed Tropical Storm Preliminary Report", "Rainfall Summary for Hurricane Florence", "Tropical Cyclone Report: Hurricane Wilma", "Tropical Storm Isaac Preliminary Report", "Tropical Depression Twenty-E Discussion for 0300 UTC", "Tropical Cyclone Report: Hurricane Ivan", "Tropical Storm Keith Preliminary Report", The Deadliest, Costliest, and Most Intense United States Tropical Cyclones from 1851 to 2010 (And Other Frequently Requested Hurricane Facts), 10.1175/1520-0493(1989)117<2248:AHSO>2.0.CO;2, Detailed information on all storms from 1988, Information concerning U.S. rainfall from tropical cyclones in 1988, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=1988_Atlantic_hurricane_season&oldid=990393390, Short description is different from Wikidata, Wikipedia indefinitely move-protected pages, Articles with unsourced statements from May 2018, Articles which contain graphical timelines, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, United States East Coast, Atlantic Canada, Venezuela, Central America, Hispaniola, Mexico, Lesser Antilles, Colombia, Venezuela, Central America.

The first cyclone to attain tropical storm status was Alb… [62], A westward-moving tropical wave, that left the coast of Africa in early October, tracked closely behind Hurricane Joan through the southern Caribbean. Amanda, the first named storm and first hurricane of the eastern Pacific hurricane season, formed on the afternoon of May 22 as a tropical depression about 635 miles south-southwest of … The names not retired from this list were used again in the 1994 season. An explosive Hurricane Eta rapidly intensified on Monday, becoming a major storm in a matter of hours while threatening to grow even stronger before making landfall. View the 1988 Hurricane High School yearbook for free, or buy a reprint. [7], Timeline of tropical activity in 1988 Atlantic hurricane season, The first tropical depression of the season formed on May 30 in the northwest Caribbean Sea. It crossed into the Pacific Ocean on July 24, developing convection and outflow. The wiki was founded in May 2006 by active Wikipedia editors and relaunched in April 2007 after a short hiatus. [70] Keith, the last of four named tropical cyclones to hit the United States during the season, produced moderate rainfall, a rough storm surge, and gusty winds across central Florida. [9] The rainfall most affected the province of Cienfuegos, though the provinces of Villa Clara, Sancti Spíritus, Ciego de Ávila, and Camagüey were also impacted. [1], Under the anticipation of heavy rains[6] and landslides, a "blue" alert was declared for Guerrero.

[23] According to the National Weather Service, winds in some squalls to the north and east of the center reached up to 50 mph (80 km/h). The hurricane tracked through the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico and caused devastation in Mexico and many island nations, particularly Jamaica. After crossing the state, it became extratropical on November 24 near Bermuda and became an intense extratropical system over the Atlantic with sustained winds of minimal hurricane force. The first cyclone to attain tropical storm status was Alberto on August 8, nearly a month later than usual. [42] Convection over the southern portion increased and wrapped around the center of the cloud band. The Lawless Land (1988) cast and crew credits, including actors, actresses, directors, writers and more. Josh has many family members and associates who include James Dunlap, Alexis Parsons, John Elswick, Daniel Napier and Amanda Holbert. [34], Debby formed from the southern part of a tropical wave that became Tropical Storm Chris. [10] In Colima, minor landslides occurred, resulting in the closure of Federal Highway 200. It moved westward through the Caribbean Sea and became organized enough to attain tropical storm status on November 20. Alison Lurie, the Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist whose satirical and cerebral tales of love and academia included the marital saga “The War Between the Tates” and the comedy of Americans abroad “Foreign Affairs,” died Thursday at age 94. [42], Early in its duration the system dropped moderate amounts of rainfall across the Yucatán Peninsula. Winds were estimated at 155 mph (250 km/h) and the minimum pressure at 932 mbar (hPa; 27.52 inHg). On July 27, it organized into a tropical depression off the southwest coast of Mexico. Rainfall from the hurricane caused severe river flooding in portions of the Florida Panhandle in an area already severely affected by heavy rainfall, and the flooding damaged or destroyed dozens of houses in Santa Rosa County. Hurricane Elena - September 2, 1985. [2], The Atlantic hurricane season officially began on June 1,[1] but activity in 1988 began two days earlier with the formation of Tropical Depression One on May 30. The remnants redeveloped on August 30 about 180 miles (290 km) southeast of North Carolina,[3] and the Washington office of the National Weather Service continued to track the system as a gale center until it merged with a front off the East Coast on September 1. The most notable cyclone of the season was Hurricane Gilbert, which at the time was the strongest Atlantic hurricane on record. This is the same list used for the 1982 season. Five tropical cyclones reached hurricane status of which three became major hurricanes reaching Category 3 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale. At 12:00 UTC on September 30, Helene transitioned into an extratropical cyclone while centered well south of Iceland. [1], The activity in the first two months of the season was limited because of strong wind shear from an upper tropospheric flow. [citation needed], For three days a large trough of low pressure northwest of the system steered it north-northwest towards cooler waters. [47], Gilbert weakened slightly before landfall on the Yucatán Peninsula, although it struck at Category 5 strength. Late on September 3 it was upgraded to Tropical Storm Ernesto. [67][68][69] Minimal damage was reported in Mexico, still recovering from the devastating effects of Hurricane Gilbert two months earlier. The storm left many without power and communications, severely damaged the country's transportation infrastructure, and destroyed six bridges. Hurricane season ending, but a late-season storm still possible ... Saturday marks anniversary of historic, deadly 1988 tornado . On May 16, a tropical wave emerged into the Eastern Pacific. [10] A tornado in the city of Camagüey destroyed five Soviet planes and multiple buildings. Rolling Storm Damage Reports [11] Flooding prompted officials to use rescue crews, helicopters, and amphibious vehicles to evacuate 65,000 residents in low-lying areas to higher grounds. The center passed south of Monterrey, Mexico, on September 17 and brought heavy flooding to the city. [31], Drifting west-northwest over the Gulf of Mexico, the depression organized and reached tropical storm-strength early on September 2. They were replaced by Gordon and Joyce in the 1994 season. Southern Hemisphere tropical cyclone seasons: This page was last edited on 24 November 2020, at 06:31. By August 6 the storm was designated the second tropical depression of the season. [3] The official storm track forecast errors were 30 to 40 percent lower than the average for the previous 10 years. [citation needed], The depression passed south of Puerto Rico on August 24 and dumped more than 14 in (360 mm) of rain on parts of the island. Joan at the time was the southernmost Category 4 hurricane ever recorded, but this record has since been broken by Hurricane Ivan. For the next two days the system traveled northwest while it strengthened into Tropical Storm Joan. 90 percent of all hurricane deaths are a result of storm surge. [51] The remnants of Isaac eventually regenerated in the eastern Pacific Ocean basin as Tropical Depression Twenty-E.[52], As a tropical cyclone, Isaac did not significantly affect land.
