What is the highest number of hurricanes recorded in a season and what was the last one's name?
The last ones name was Katrina. To find out the wrest of your questions look on the "NOAA" web site. It will tell you everything you want to know. I believe the most storms in one season was 19 named storms, but not all were hurricanes. Nitro... thanks for the reply. What I meant was not the most recent hurricane (Katrina) but the name of the highest numbered hurricane in a season - which according to this snippet from CNN.com was "Wilma." ---------------- http://www.cnn.com/2005/WEATHER/09/08/tropical.weather/ ---------------- ... Just a week into September -- historically the most active month for tropical activity -- the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season has seen 15 named storms, six of which reached hurricane strength with winds of at least 74 mph. Four of those became major hurricanes, with sustained winds of at least 111 mph. According to the National Hurricane Center, the historical averages for a hurricane season are 10 named storms, six hurricanes and two major hurricanes. Those numbers have been met or exceeded this season, which doesn't end until November 30. The largest number of named storms ever recorded was 21, in 1933, a record that will be broken if just seven more storms develop in the next 12 weeks. And if that happens, the hurricane center will run out of names for the first time since it adopted the system of assigning names to storms in 1953. The letters Q, U, X, Y and Z aren't used, because few names begin with those letters; the 21st and last name on this year's hurricane list is Wilma. After that, Greek letters will be used to designate storms, beginning with alpha. The most hurricanes recorded in the Atlantic is 12, in 1969, according to the hurricane center, and the largest number of major hurricanes is eight, in 1950. ###

When is Hurricane season in south america? The section of South America within the northern hemisphere shares the June - October hurricane season of the northern Atlantic. However, because of the Coriolis effect, few hurricanes in this area make landfall in South America. In the southern hemisphere, the Pacific side of the continent has no recorded hurricanes. A single hurricane was recorded on the Atlantic side in 2004 - hurricane Catarina, which landed in the…
Hurricanes can occur outside of the official hurricane season, but it is rare. Hurricanes need warm ocean water in order to form and in most cases the water is not warm enough outside of hurricane season to support the formation of hurricanes. About 3% of hurricanes and tropical storms occur out of season.
Hurricanes have been around for a long time. And I mean as long as maybe billions and billions and billions of years. Even Jupiter and Neptune have hurricanes!! The biggest hurricanes on those planets are probably category 10 or whatever. Anyway, since hurricanes have been around for so many years, it's impossible to tell what was the first season. The first recorded season was probably in 1800. I don't know anything beyond that. Hurricane tracking…
How many and what are the names of the hurricanes that occurred in the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico from the year with the lowest number of hurricanes in the years 2000-2009?
Yes. 2009 was a relatively mild hurricanes season, at least for the Atlantic with 9 tropical storms of which 3 became hurricanes. 2010 was very active with 19 tropical storms of which 12 became hurricanes. 2011 was also active with 19 tropical storms of which 7 became hurricanes. However, a 3 year period of analysis is not enough to draw any conclusions.
According to the NOAA National Hurricane Center, there are an average of 5.8 Atlantic hurricanes per year that affect the United States. Although this doesn't necessarily mean they "hit they US." (See http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/pastprofile.shtml) In the 2009 hurricane season, there were 2 Atlantic hurricanes.
First the statistics for the North Atlantic: 2005 Three of the six most powerful hurricanes ever recorded in the Atlantic basin (Katrina, Rita, Wilma), including the most destructive hurricane in U.S. history (Katrina); the first time three category 5 hurricanes have ever been recorded in the same year in the Atlantic basin. 2006 A quiet year with 2 major hurricanes (category 3 or above), none at level 5. 2007 2 major hurricanes, both category 5…
