Extremely active hurricane season ends in the Atlantic

2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season Wraps Today

November 30 marks the final day of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) says the season matched their predictions and was "extremely active". The death toll there stands at 58, but a CNN investigation revealed 499 deaths recorded by funeral homes.

The first major Hurricane of the season was Hurricane Harvey on August 25.

In August, Hurricane Harvey was the most powerful storm to hit Texas in more than 50 years, killing more than 75 people and paralyzing Houston, the fourth most-populous USA city with catastrophic flooding. In total, there were 17 named storms, 10 hurricanes, and six major hurricanes (a Category 3, 4 or 5 storm).

Preliminary damage costs for the 2017 season are estimated at more than $300 billion, with the majority of the damage related to Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. The season also included the first two major hurricanes to hit the continental U.S.in 12 years. That extreme activity also followed a four-year string of Septembers from 2013 to 2016 that Klotzbach called the "quietest" four Septembers since the period between 1911 and 1914.

From Hurricane Harvey and the disastrous flooding in the Houston area to Hurricane Maria and the devastation it left behind in Puerto Rico, the 2017 hurricane season has been one for the history books.

How does Donald Trump keep finding new ways to embarrass the nation? "You were here long before any of us were here". During remarks praising their service, he said: "You were here long before any of us were here".

"Hurricane Harvey was the first major hurricane to make landfall in the US since Wilma in 2005 and dumped a record 60.58" of rain near Nederland, Texas.

Lastly, Ophelia became a hurricane three days later on October 11th.

But more intense storms are what scientists expect to see as the planet's climate changes because warmer ocean water is fuel for hurricanes.

"It's certainly noteworthy that the track forecasts beat the previous record at every lead time", McNoldy said. Much of the island remains without power more than two months later. The storm severely damaged New Orleans, Louisiana. This marked the tenth consecutive storm to reach hurricane status!
