[45] In Jamaica, rainfall contributed to one death. [10], In April, CSU slightly raised their values owing to a favorable Atlantic sea surface temperature configuration during the preceding month, upping the projected numbers to 15 named storms, 8 hurricanes, and 4 major hurricanes. [41] At the time, the season ranked as the third costliest on record, behind only 2004 and 2005. 9, RA IV Hurricane Committee Thirty-First Session Final Report, "Atlantic hurricane best track (HURDAT version 2)", Satellite movie of 2008 Atlantic hurricane season, HPC rainfall page for 2008 Tropical Cyclones, National Hurricane Center's Atlantic Tropical Weather Outlook, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=2008_Atlantic_hurricane_season&oldid=993501741, Articles which contain graphical timelines, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––. [68], Rough surf and rip currents led to the deaths of three men in Panama City Beach, Florida,[69][70][71] a fourth man in Perdido Key,[72] a fifth man at Orange Beach, Alabama,[73] and a sixth man near the mouth of the Mississippi River. The cyclone caused a particularly devastating storm surge along the western Gulf Coast of the United States due to in part to its large size. [37][32] Dolly caused up to $1.6 billion in damage to south Texas and northeastern Mexico. The low was ultimately absorbed by a larger extratropical system over Kentucky early the next morning. A reprieve in upper-level winds allowed Hanna to attain hurricane strength at 18:00 UTC on September 1 and reach peak winds of 85 mph (140 km/h) six hours later. The 2008 Atlantic Hurricane Season These pages are strictly for non-profit educational use that is not of a commercial nature. The low turned northwest and dissipated on October 15. Winds just shy of tropical storm intensity damaged the roofs of homes and downed several trees. Once in the Atlantic, the system became better organized and coalesced into a tropical depression around 00:00 UTC on July 19. More than $10 billion in damage and 8 deaths occurred there. The National Hurricane Center's Tropical Cyclone Reports contain comprehensive information on [54] Over a seven-day period beginning on July 9, the storm contributed to 1,500 ocean rescues in Ocean City, Maryland. NWS A reconnaissance aircraft measured peak winds of 30 mph (45 km/h), and the depression maintained these winds as it made landfall just west of Punta Patuca, Honduras, at 12:30 UTC on October 15. After briefly weakening below major hurricane strength, a relaxation in the upper-level winds allowed Ike to reattain Category 4 strength while entering the Turks and Caicos Islands; it then made several landfalls at a slightly reduced intensity. Help [59] Kyle and its remnants caused roughly $9 million in damage in Canada. [86] Eighty-five people were killed. About Us View credits, reviews, tracks and shop for the 2008 CD release of Hurricane on Discogs. [36], Hanna produced heavy rainfall across mountainous sections of Puerto Rico, leading to mudslides that damaged bridges and roads. [65] Farther north in New Mexico, an estimated 350–500 structures were damaged, roads and bridges were washed out, and one man was swept away by the swollen Rio Ruidoso river. [74] In Texas, rainfall peaked at 6.48 in (165 mm) near Baytown, leading to the inundation of dozens of homes. [33][34][35][36] Gustav was another very destructive storm, causing up to $8.31 billion in damage to Haiti, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, Cuba, and the United States. There, an increase in convection led to the formation of a tropical depression around 06:00 UTC on October 13; it intensified into Tropical Storm Omar eighteen hours later. Total damage was estimated at $78 million, and five deaths were recorded. The National Hurricane Center's Tropical Cyclone Reports contain comprehensive information on each tropical cyclone, including synoptic history, meteorological statistics, casualties and damages, and the post-analysis best track (six-hourly positions and intensities). Scientists at NOAA’s National Hurricane Center are predicting that the 2008 Atlantic hurricane season is going to be an active one, likely to have at least 12 named storms. Max wind speed 85mph. Courtesy NOAA. [11] TSR, in contrast, slightly reduced their numbers on April 7 due to cooler projections for Atlantic Ocean temperatures compared to their December forecast. Hurricane Ike Coordinates. Edouard made landfall near the McFaddin and Texas Point National Wildlife Refuges at 12:00 UTC on August 5 at peak strength. The 2008 Atlantic hurricane season was the most disastrous Atlantic hurricane season since 2005, causing over 1,000 deaths and nearly $50 billion (2008 USD) in damage. In total, Gustav cost $6 billion in the United States and killed 53 people: 48 in Louisiana, 4 in Florida, and 1 at sea. [31] In Cuba, nearly a quarter of the island's population, 2.6 million people, was evacuated in advance of the storm; as a result, only seven deaths were reported. In what was described as the region's worst flooding disaster since Hurricane Mitch, crops suffered catastrophic losses, tens of thousands of homes were destroyed, and dozens of people were killed. [112] The storm's remnants moved northward into Florida, resulting in a daily rainfall record in Tallahassee and localized heavy rainfall in surrounding locales. [30] Hurricane Ike was the most destructive storm of the season, as well as the strongest, devastating Cuba as a major hurricane and later making landfall near Galveston, Texas, at Category 2 (nearly Category 3) intensity. A normal season, as defined by NOAA, has 9 to 12 named storms, with 5 to 7 of those reaching hurricane strength, and 1 to 3 major hurricanes. The remnants accelerated northeast and merged with another extratropical low over the Great Lakes later on September 5. [47] In mid- to late October, the tropical depression combined with another area of low pressure as well as a cold front to produce torrential rainfall across Central America. To be sure, the 2008 hurricane season, covering the Atlantic basin and the Eastern and mid-Pacific areas, is in full swing. Gustav weakened while traversing Haiti and Jamaica but quickly restrengthened over the northwestern Caribbean, reaching winds of 145 mph (230 km/h) before making landfall on the Isle of Youth, and striking the mainland just east of Los Palacios, Cuba, with winds of 155 mph (240 km/h) later on August 30. Interaction between the cyclone and an upper-level low kept Hanna fairly steady-state for several days, with its appearance briefly resembling that of a subtropical storm. In the case of Gustav, which made landfall along the central Louisiana coast the morning of Sept. 1, the NHC forecast was pretty close to having the location of landfall "nailed" as early as Thursday morning, Aug. 28, but occurring about 24 hours later than observed. One person died in South Carolina after drowning in a drainage ditch. The low merged with a front less than 24 hours later and existed as an extratropical entity until being absorbed by a larger non-tropical low west of the British Isles on October 4. [53] At Wrightsville Beach in particular, officials estimated at least 60 water rescues over a 48-hour span. To help keep track of these storms, we've added a "Hurricane Season 2008" folder under "Weather" in Google Earth. [31] Ike was estimated to have caused about $7.3 billion in damage across Cuba, making it the costliest hurricane on record there until Hurricane Irma in 2017. The post-tropical storm continued northeast and merged with a larger extratropical low near Iceland on July 21. Ike, classified as a hurricane made landfall on September 13, 2008.

The depression intensified into Tropical Storm Fay as it struck the coastline of Haiti, and it maintained its status as a minimal tropical storm while progressing through the Cayman Trough and into south-central Cuba. [55], The precursor disturbance to Cristobal produced up to 6 in (150 mm) of rain in Florida, blocking storm drains and causing street flooding. [33] Along the coastline of the United States, rip currents killed one person at Kure Beach, North Carolina and another in Spring Lake, New Jersey. The storm continued northeast through the Anegada Passage and into the central Atlantic. It was the only year on record in which a major hurricane existed in every month from July through November in the North Atlantic. The westward-moving feature crossed the Windward Islands on September 19 and began to interact with a strong upper-level trough, leading to an increase in convection and a more evident circulation center.

Damage and deaths include totals while the storm was extratropical, a wave, or a low, and all of the damage figures are in 2008 USD. [45] The 211 mph (340 km/h) wind gust, observed at Paso Real de San Diego weather station in Pinar del Río Province, was the second highest wind gust ever recorded on land in a tropical cyclone, behind only Cyclone Olivia's 253 mph (407 km/h) gust on Barrow Island, Australia. casualties and damages, and the post-analysis best track (six-hourly Meanwhile, Bertha produced large waves and rip currents along the U.S. East Coast, resulting in 3 deaths offshore New Jersey and 57 water rescues in Atlantic City alone. Max wind speed 145mph. The storm's destruction was most complete on the Bolivar Peninsula, where nearly all homes were wiped off their foundations and demolished. Hurricane Hanna is fast approaching the U.S. East Coast with another hurricane, Ike, hot on her heels. Figure 1 Each storm’s actual track is represented by the black line. [81] Fay was a prolific tornado producer, with 81 confirmations across 5 states: 19 in Florida, 17 in Georgia, 16 in North Carolina, 15 in Alabama, and 14 in South Carolina. Cuba also received extensive impacts from Gustav, Ike, and Paloma, with Gustav and Ike making landfall in the country at major hurricane intensity and Paloma being a Category 2 when striking the nation. Ike was a category 2 hurricane at landfall with maximum sustained winds of 110 mph. In Ohio alone, 2.6 million people lost power. A range of 12 to 16 named storms, 6 to 9 hurricanes, and 2 to 5 major hurricanes was provided, each with 60 to 70 percent probability. positions and intensities). The season was devastating for Haiti, where nearly 800 people were killed by four consecutive tropical cyclones (Fay, Gustav, Hanna, and Ike), especially Hurricane Hanna, in August and September. Track Maps For Some Earlier Hurricanes. The system quickly weakened once inland and was downgraded to a tropical depression early on August 6 before degenerating into a remnant low at 06:00 UTC that day. [89] Total damage was estimated at $160 million. [49], In late May, a westward-moving tropical wave and the mid-level remnants of Tropical Storm Alma from the East Pacific combined over the northwestern Caribbean Sea.

[44] Across the Lesser Antilles, the combination of strong winds and frequent lightning caused widespread power outages. A tropical wave reached the southwestern Caribbean on October 4, aiding in the formation of a circulation center near Belize. Uncharacteristically, the cyclone was plagued by moderate wind shear during its rapid intensification phase, and a further increase in upper-level winds caused Omar to abruptly weaken. In Texas, the hurricane caused moderate structural damage to the roofs of homes on South Padre Island, where maximum sustained winds of 78 mph (126 km/h), gusting to 107 mph (172 km/h), were recorded.

[62] Offshore, the body of a fisherman was recovered while three others were purported missing. Hurricane tracking maps, current sea temperatures, and more. [104], A tropical wave exited the west coast of Africa on October 6, accompanied by a broad area of low pressure. While run-off ultimately helped replenish Lake Okeechobee and surrounding reservoirs,[78] the immediate impact of the rain event was more destructive. Land interaction prompted structural changes to the storm's core, and Ike only slowly rebounded to an intensity of 110 mph (175 km/h) before its landfall on the northern end of Galveston Island, Texas, early on September 13. Storm surge was severe in western sections of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, causing significant damage to coastal property and businesses. The first occurred near Key West on August 18 and the second just east of Cape Romano on August 19. Gustav continued northwest, weakening to a tropical depression over northern Louisiana before merging with a cold front over northern Arkansas around 12:00 UTC on September 4. The low paralleled the coastline of Nicaragua for a few days while associated convection became better organized; this ultimately led to the development of a tropical depression around 12:00 UTC on October 14. It ultimately degenerated to a remnant low early the next day. Plagued by wind shear and dry air, the hurricane did not re-intensify over the Gulf of Mexico, instead making a final landfall near Cocodrie, Louisiana, at 15:00 UTC on September 1 with winds of 105 mph (165 km/h). [64] The remnants of the storm heavy impacted Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, where five homes and a historic church were collapsed and about 2,840 acres (1,150 hectares) of corn and barley were ruined.

It affected the states of Idaho, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Texas, Arkansas and Indiana. [114] The names not retired from this list were used again in the 2014 season. Widespread heavy rainfall occurred throughout southern Texas, with a concentration of 15 in (381 mm) near Harlingen; this rainfall caused severe inland flooding. The season ranked as the third costliest ever at the time, but has since fallen to sixth costliest. The trough extended into the Gulf of Mexico the following day and resulted in the development of a circulation that subsequently crossed Florida on July 17. Insured losses climbed to $1.1 billion, rivaling the Xenia tornado of the 1974 Super Outbreak as the costliest natural disaster in the state's history. hurricanes. ... 1995 Hurricane Season Track Maps. No projections for the number of hurricanes, major hurricanes, or ACE were given. [47], Overall, the season's activity was reflected with a total cumulative accumulated cyclone energy (ACE) rating of 146, which was well above the normal average, and was the highest value since 2005. 11691 SW 17th Street Dozens of residents were injured but no deaths occurred. [40], As the cyclone passed east of Bermuda, it produced strong wind gusts peaking at 91 mph (146 km/h). [6] On August 7, NOAA's CPC raised their probability of an above-average season from 65 percent to 85 percent. [37] The impact of Gustav was ruinous across the Isle of Youth and mainland Cuba, where sustained winds of 155 mph (249 km/h) and gusts up to 211 mph (340 km/h) resulted in damage to 120,509 structures (about 21,941 beyond repair).

They were replaced with Gonzalo, Isaias, and Paulette for the 2014 season.[115]. Dry air and cooler waters eroded the storm's eyewall after peak intensity, but Dolly still harbored winds of 85 mph (140 km/h) at its landfall on South Padre Island, Texas, at 18:20 UTC. [46] In Cuba, the combination of hurricane-force winds, torrential rainfall, and significant storm surge along the coastline resulted in damage to 12,159 homes; 1,453 of these were destroyed. This feature organized into Subtropical Storm Laura by 06:00 UTC on September 29 after shedding its frontal boundaries, and it further developed into a fully tropical system on September 30 as deep convection formed over the center. [31], A strong tropical wave accompanied by a surface low departed Africa late on August 31. The precursor to Kyle and the outer rain bands of Paloma also impacted Haiti.
