Eight of the depressions attained tropical storm status, and eight of these attained hurricane status. On the island of Cuba, three fatalities occurred and losses were unknown. Most of the following are tropical cyclones that passed through the state after weakening from their peak. Thereafter, Jeanne began to weaken due to dry air and was downgraded to a tropical storm 24 hours after peak intensity. A Hurricane Andrew‎ (5 P) I Hurricane Ike‎ (19 P, 1 F) K Hurricane Katrina‎ (5 C, 12 P) R Hurricane Rita‎ (6 P) Pages in category "Hurricanes in Louisiana" The following 76 pages are in this category, out of 76 total. [2], After peak intensity, Frances began to weaken and was downgraded to a Category 2 hurricane later on September 9. In that month, 21 storms have affected or hit Texas. The U.S. has seen over 200 weather disasters since 1980 for which overall costs reached at least $1 billion (consumer price index-adjusted to 2017). By October 12, the cold front absorbed Ivan, which was about 665 miles (1,070 km) west of Ireland. Allen was also the first storm to affect or hit the state. [4], Although 500 houses were either damaged or destroyed on Barbados, losses totaled to only $1.5 million (1980 USD). [52] As a result of heavy precipitation, schools were and numerous businesses were closed, flights at Key West International Airport were grounded, and power outages and disruptions in telephone service occurred in Key West. By November 11, Jeanne was upgraded to a hurricane while paralleling the northern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. [37], After evidence of an eye feature appeared, Earl was upgraded to a hurricane on September 8. Numerous hurricanes that remained offshore have each drowned small numbers of swimmers. Later that day, the storm attained its peak intensity with winds of 190 mph (305 km/h) and a minimum barometric pressure of 899 mbar (26.5 inHg). In the 2000 Farmers’ Almanac, we listed the 100 most memorable weather events of the past 100 years.The list included tornadoes, blizzards, floods, droughts, and, of course, hurricanes. [6] Having passed only 8 miles (13 km) south of St. Lucia,[19] Allen produced sustained winds as high as 104 mph (167 km/h) on the island. [60] It was the first (and only, in the case of Allen) use for all of these names since the post-1978 naming change, except for Frances, which had been used in 1961, 1968, and 1976. While curving northwestward on September 13, Frances remained steady in intensity as a Category 2 hurricane. In addition, one death was reported in Guadeloupe. The storm caused 27 fatalities and $88 million (1980 USD) in damage on that island. [51] Fringe effects of Hurricane Jeanne triggered a record-breaking 23.28 inches (591 mm) of rain at Key West, Florida within a 24-hour period. The season occurred during an ENSO-neutral phase, having neither an El Niño nor a La Niña. According to David Roth of the Weather Prediction Center , a tropical cyclone makes landfall along the coastline about three times every four years, and on any 50 mi (80 km) segment of the coastline a hurricane makes landfall about once every six years. Steered northward by deep southerly flow southeast of Jeanne, the depression oscillated in organization while tracking west-northwestward. However, by early on September 26, Hermine dissipated near the southwestern coast of Mexico. The 1980 Atlantic hurricane season was tied with 1932, 1969, and 1994 for having the most named storms form in the Atlantic Ocean during the month of November – only to be surpassed in 2001, 2005, and 2020. The 1980 Atlantic hurricane season officially began on June 1, 1980, and ended on November 30, 1980. [46], An area of disturbed weather organized into a tropical depression late on November 8. [53] In Texas, high tides caused flooding along much of the coast of the state, especially in Galveston. Six hours later, Earl transitioned into an extratropical cyclone, while centered about halfway between the Azores and Greenland. Hurricanes & Society . [47] Ivan moved largely in tandem with the upper-level low above it, while its southwest movement was caused by a building ridge to its north. This gallery shows maps of hurricanes and tropical storms by decade. Eventually, the system developed into Tropical Depression Eight on September 4, which later became Tropical Storm Danielle. Hurricane Allen was then the earliest Category 5 hurricane on record and also devastated portions of the Caribbean Sea, Mexico, and the United States. The system slowly strengthened and developed into a separate vortex. In Key West, sustained winds of 30 mph (45 km/h) and gusts to 40 mph (65 km/h) were reported. [44] As a result of torrential rainfall, at least 30 fatalities occurred, with dozens more missing,[5] and leaving 25,000 homeless. [55] Shortly thereafter, the remnants of the depression crossed Central and North Florida. The following names were used for named storms that formed in the north Atlantic in 1980. Pre–1900. [41] Early on September 20, Frances weakened to a tropical storm,[42] before merging with a frontal low while centered about halfway between Greenland and Iceland. List of Texas hurricanes. [2], Starting on August 13, a tropical wave in the vicinity of the Cape Verde began organizing into a tropical cyclone. The depression moved northwestward, and minimal intensification occurred, as it approached the Gulf Coast of the United States. The Atlantic hurricane season officially began on June 1,[1] though the first tropical depression did not develop until July 17. List of tropical cyclones. [31] While bypassing Newfoundland, Georges dropped light rainfall, with amounts under 1 inch (25 mm) of precipitation. By November 27, Karl merged with another approaching system and was declared extratropical by November 28, while it was centered roughly halfway between Cape Race, Newfoundland and Spain.[58]. [25], A barge in the Gulf of Mexico capsized due to rough seas, sending 11 of the crewmen overboard; one person drowned as a result. Two days later, the system developed into Tropical Depression Eight while offshore of Louisiana. Southern Hemisphere tropical cyclone seasons: This page was last edited on 6 December 2020, at 11:44. [26][28] Ten hours later, the National Hurricane Center resumed advisories on the subtropical depression. [57] Across much of Florida, light rainfall was reported, peaking at 4.81 inches (122 mm) in Brooksville. [2] The remnants of Tropical Depression Six continued westward and interacted with a low-pressure system over Florida. About 18 hours later, the storm intensified and acquired enough tropical characteristics to be designated a hurricane. Initially, the depression tracked east-southeastward, though it curved east-northeastward by August 21. The depression degenerated into a tropical wave while well northeast of Puerto Rico on August 29. Although officially, subtropical cyclones are excluded from the total,[17] the figure above includes periods when storms were in a subtropical phase. [40] After becoming a hurricane, Frances began to rapidly strengthen, and became a Category 2 hurricane later that day. [23] The storm remained at that intensity for 72 hours as it accelerated northward across the open Atlantic. The storm curved southward and completed a cyclonic loop, before being absorbed by a cold front on November 16. The memorable hurricanes that hit the gulf coast(1980-present) Timeline created by mathdude123. After peaking with winds of 60 mph (95 km/h), further intensification was halted, as Danielle soon made landfall in eastern Texas. Observational records of tropical storm and hurricanes are essential in order to discern how climatic changes have influenced tropical storms and hurricanes, and to build predictive understanding of the influence of climate on hurricanes. A musical montage of all the retired hurricanes from the 1980's. Upon entering the Caribbean Sea, Allen continued to strengthen and became a Category 5 hurricane on August 5, while about halfway between Puerto Rico and Venezuela. The storm steadily intensified and became a hurricane on August 3. [22] However, in post-analysis, it was revealed that the previous tropical depression had actually developed before Bonnie. 1900–1949. As meteorologists and average people discuss past hurricanes, here's a list of the ones that have made landfall in Louisiana in the past 50 years. Bonnie turned in a general northward direction, possibly due to interaction with nearby Tropical Depression Four. Thus, those two depressions were operationally numbered incorrectly. [33] Damage in that state was minimal. Interactive History Timeline; Featured Storms; Hurricane Case Studies; Resources . [2] However, the National Hurricane Center did not initiate advisories until August 16. Last edited on 27 November 2020, at 00:17.

[12] Danielle produced widespread rainfall in Louisiana, though few areas reported more than 5 inches (130 mm) of precipitation. Storm Tracks by Year of Hurricanes and Tropical Storms, 1991 This map created by FCIT shows storm tracks of hurricanes and tropical storms in 1991. [34] Rainfall was heavier in Texas, peaking at 18.29 inches (465 mm). The legend shows the tracks of each storm and the dates it occurred. Six hours later, the storm attained its peak intensity with winds of 75 mph (120 km/h) and a minimum pressure of 985 mbar (29.1 inHg). [2] Only Allen made landfall at hurricane strength during the season, although Hurricane Charley[3] and tropical storms Danielle and Hermine also caused damage and fatalities. Hermine curved west-northwestward and nearly strengthened into a hurricane before landfall in northern British Honduras (present-day Belize) on September 22. Damage in United States totaled to $860 million (1980 USD). [2][54] While crossing Cuba, the depression dumped heavy rainfall. In the spring of 1980, the names, David and Frederic were retired and replaced with the names Danny and Fabian.

Two of the systems became named storms,[4] a record that was tied with 1932, 1969, and 1994, but later surpassed when three tropical storms existed in the Atlantic in November 2001 and November 2005.[2]. The season was fairly active, with fifteen tropical cyclones forming. [46] During that time, the eye fluctuated occasionally as the convection waxed and waned. The storm continued eastward and by August 26, Charley became unidentifiable as it merged with an intense extratropical cyclone, while located about 790 miles (1,270 km) southeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland. [30] While the subtropical depression was curved northeastward, it strengthened and acquired tropical characteristics. [54], A low pressure area formed along a frontal boundary near the southeastern United States. Two major hurricanes occurred in the five years from 1965 to 1970. [9][10][11][35][36] Outside of Texas and Louisiana, the storm also dropped light rainfall in Oklahoma and Mississippi, though minimal damage occurred in either state. On the following day, the depression curved northwestward and slowly began to weaken. This season featured the very powerful Hurricane Allen.

In Corpus Christi, gravel blew off the roofs, which broke windows throughout the city. On the following day, Earl curved north-northwestward and accelerated due to an upper-level low pressure trough in the central Atlantic Ocean. [61] It was replaced with Andrew for the 1986 season.[60]. In the spring of 1981, at the 3rd session of the RA IV hurricane committee, the World Meteorological Organization retired the name Allen from its rotating name lists due to its destructive impacts, and it will not be used again for another Atlantic hurricane. Shortly thereafter, Allen weakened significantly on August 6, but was still a Category 4 when it bypassed Jamaica. It then accelerated north-northeastward, make landfall as a Category 3 hurricane over Long Island, New York and Connecticut on the 31st.

While it was becoming a Category 3 hurricane, and a Category 4 hurricane, shortly after, Allen passed through the Windward Islands. A decaying cold front entered into Gulf of Mexico, and developed a low-pressure area of July 17. Wildfires, heat waves and droughts, with $18 billion in losses accounted for 34 percent of U.S. insured losses in 2018. Tropical Storm Hermine caused significant flooding in Mexico, which resulted in at least 38 fatalities. The depression made landfall in Texas near the Galveston area, and dissipated by July 21. [38], A tropical wave exited the west coast of Africa on September 11 and tracked westward with minimal development until reaching the Caribbean Sea. This season had about average activity with 15 storms, of which 11 got named. On November 27, the eye of Karl became ragged while passing within 230 miles (370 km) of the Azores and started to show signs of deterioration. As a result, it was determine that the system developed into a subtropical depression at 1200 UTC, while located about 150 miles (240 km) east-northeast of Hatteras, North Carolina.

This season featured the very powerful Hurricane Allen. Watch our Youtube hurricane tracks video from meteorologist Rich Johnson. Allen briefly curved northwestward and approached the Tiburon Peninsula of Haiti. Several tornadoes were spawned in Texas, one of which caused $100 million (1980 USD) in damage in Austin. [27] The depression tracked westward in the trade winds during the following three days, without any intensification. [54], Late on November 17, the depression was absorbed by an intense "winter type storm" that was moving across the Southeastern United States. Satellite imagery indicated that the system had rapidly organized and was classified as a tropical depression on September 4. However, the depression did not strengthen further, and about four days later, it degenerated back into a tropical wave. About 1,000 deaths resulted from eight hurricanes, five of which were classified as major (Category 3 or 4). [16] 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. The depression slowly intensified as it tracked north-northwestward into the northwestern Caribbean Sea. By November 15, the depression reorganized its convective organization while making landfall in western Cuba early on November 16. Tropical cyclone records were not kept before the 1950s.
