Devastating hurricane season finally ending

2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season Wraps Today

The 2017 Hurricane Season ends Thursday, closing a season that broke multiple records.

This season had 17 named storms, 10 hurricanes, and six major hurricanes. Six of those hurricanes were considered major with two being deadly category five monsters.

Fueled by warmer than normal ocean temperatures and ideal wind conditions, September had more days with major hurricanes spinning and more overall hurricane energy expelled than any month on record, according to Colorado State University hurricane researcher Phil Klotzbach.

The reported death toll from 2017's Atlantic storms now stands at 438 people, although the actual number could be higher. The 2005 Hurricane Season (Charley, Francis, Ivan, Jeanne, Katrina) had 28 named storms and holds the honor of most active season, whereas we saw 16 named storms for 2017. The official totals will not come out for a few weeks, but that record is now held by the 2005 Hurricane Season (Charley, Francis, Ivan, Jeanne, Katrina) caused an estimated $143.5 billion of damage to this country.

Most recently, a subtropical storm discovered in post-season analysis meandered for about 48 hours just south of the Azores in early December 2013.

Hurricane Ophelia's path was very unusual.

"Throughout this devastating hurricane season, NOAA provided vital forecasts and data that helped save many lives".

As the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season closes, we look back on what was quite an indelible season. Puerto Rico was nearly destroyed by the impact of Hurricane Maria, adding an estimated $45-$95 billion in damage to the island's already struggling economy.

Before the season began on June 1st, there were indications pointing to an above-average hurricane season.

- Harvey produced biggest rainfall total from a single storm on record in the United States: 51.88 inches. The previous record was set by Hurricane Frances in 1980.

November 30 brings to an end another Atlantic hurricane season. The storm struck September 20th as a powerful Category 4 storm with sustained winds of 155 miles per hour.
