Hurricane Dean was a hurricane that formed in the Atlantic Ocean

in 2007. It was the most intense hurricane since Hurricane Wilma in

2005. Dean had a high sustained wind speed of 175 mph and a low

central pressure of 905 mbar or 26.74 inHg. It affected alot of the

carribean islands and then the Yucatan peninsula. It was also the

first to make landfall as a Category 5 hurricane since hurricane

Andrew in 1992 although it was not too dangerous because the area

it hit was sparsly populated.

Breif History: formed on August 11, 2007 off the west coast of

Africa and became Tropical depression four about 520 miles

west-southwest of cape verde. It was quicly upgraded to tropical

strom dean at about 3:00 pm on August 14, 2007 and was again

upgraded this time to hurricane dean at 9:00 am on August 16, 2007.

It moved towards the carribean and became a category 2 and then 3

on the 17th and formed a good eyewall. On the evening of the 17th

it strenghthed again to a category 4 and grew stedily through the

night. The next day it went through and eyewall replacement cycle

fluctuating in wind speed but by the evening of august 19th

continued to intensify again and by 8:35 am on August 20th it had

become a category 5 hurricane with winds of 175 mph. It made

landfall later around Quintana Roo, a region in the Mexican Yucatan

about 40 miles north of the Belize border and reemerged on the

other side of the peninsula as a category one but quicly

restrenghted and made landfall a second time at 11:30 Near

Tecolutla, Veracruz, Mexico sout of Tuxpan. It lost strenghth and

again reemerged, this time in the pacific as a weak tropical strom.

26th (time unknown) by the baja peninsula in santa Barbara

California and disipated over southern united states on the 27th
