Effects are unknown.[13] • September 19, 1863- A tropical storm crosses the state from south to north. Effects are unknown.[13] • October 28, 1872- A tropical storm crosses the state, with no known effects.[13] • September 29, 1874- With winds of 70 mph (115 km/h), a tropical storm moves across Delaware.[13] • October 5, 1877- An extratropical storm, once a Category 3 Hurricane, crosses the state, causing several ship wrecks in the Chesapeake and Delaware Bays.[14]

Track map of all tropical cyclones that passed over Delaware from 1851 to 2005 The following is a list of tropical cyclones that affected the U.S. state of Delaware. Since reliable records began, no tropical cyclone has struck the state while maintaining hurricane intensity, and only two storms since 1851 caused hurricane-force winds in the state.[1] The state often experiences the direct effects of landfalling North Atlantic tropical cyclones and from the remnants of some Pacific storms, such as rainfall or strong winds, as well as the effects of storms that remain offshore, such as rip currents or heavy surf. Since 1749, at least 108 tropical cyclones, some of which had become extratropical, have affected the state, including 21 which passed over the state.

List of tropical cyclones
Pre-1900
• October 21, 1749- A hurricane is observed over Delaware.[2] • Fall, 1783- Nine large ships crash near Cape Henlopen during a hurricane, killing several people.[3] • September 2, 1785- A hurricane causes 181 deaths in the state. Whether or not it made landfall is unknown.[4] • September 3–5, 1815- A tropical storm passes over extreme southeastern Delaware. Effects, if any, are unknown.[5]

• October 23, 1878- The Gale of 1878, which makes landfall on North Carolina, brings hurricane-force winds to the entire state of Delaware. The storm drops over 3 inches (75 mm) of rainfall in the northern portion of the state, flooding portions of Wilmington. The winds and rain from the storm damages or destroys many houses statewide. The flooding washes out railroads, roads, and bridges, and destroys many carriages in Dover. Crop damage is severe, as well. The strong winds wreck four ships, in total killing 14. A 7 foot (2.1 m) storm surge in Lewes drowns four when they can’t escape the rising waters. Beach erosion is severe, as well. Across Delaware, the hurricane kills 18 and causes $45,000 in damage (1878 USD, $1 million 2008 USD).[15] It is one of only two storms to bring hurricane-force winds to the state.[1] • August 18, 1879- A Category 2 hurricane parallels the Delmarva Peninsula after striking North Carolina, though effects, if any, are unknown.[13] • September 23, 1882- A tropical storm crosses over southeastern Delaware. Impact, if any, is unknown.[13] • June 23, 1886- A tropical depression moves across the state, with no known impact.[13] • September 11, 1888- An extratropical storm crosses the state.[13] • September 9–12, 1889- After moving northwestward for much of its life, a large hurricane approaches the East Coast of the United States, moves southwestward, and dissipates to the east of Virginia. The hurricane causes severe waves and a powerful storm surge, damaging life guard stations and wrecking or washing 31 vessels ashore. The death toll "would probably exceed 40", while damage totals $570,000 (1889 USD, $13.6 million 2008 USD).[16] • October 10, 1894- A hurricane passes to the southeast of the state.[13] • October 23–26, 1897- A tropical storm moving northward prompts officials to issue hurricane warnings from North Carolina through New York, though the storm unexpectedly executes a loop and moves out to sea.[17]

the Delaware coastline. The currents result in nearly 100 rescues and four injuries, and also forces beach closures and restrictions. The strong winds and waves cause beach erosion, as well.[70] • September 16, 1999- crosses over the southeastern portion of the state. The storm produces strong wind gusts of up to 64 mph (103 km/h) in Sussex County and heavy rainfall peaking at 10.58 inches (269 mm) in Greenwood, a 24-hour state record.

Hundreds of roads, railroad lines, and bridges are closed or destroyed, trapping dozens due to flooded vehicles. The winds uproot hundreds of trees, leaving 25,000 homes and businesses without power for 3 days. Floyd damages 171 homes, 44 severely, and destroys 33 in New Castle County. Damage is minimal near the ocean, and amounts to minor beach erosion and tidal flooding. Throughout the state, damage totals to $8.42 million (1999 USD, $10.9 million 2008 USD). In response to the damage, President Bill Clinton declares the state as a disaster area, which allows for federal funding to rebuild and cleanup after the storm.[26] • October 17, 1999- Moisture from produces rainfall across the state, ranging from 1 to 4 inches (25 to 100 mm).

In the days preceding its landfall, Isabel produces strong waves, and upon striking land, the storm causes a 5 foot (1.5 m) storm surge along the Delaware coast. The waves and surge result in beach erosion and overwash. The outer rainbands of Isabel drop around 1 inch (25 mm) of rain, though the storm’s large circulation produces strong wind gusts of up to 70 mph (112 km/h). The wind gusts knock down many trees and power lines, causing one of the worst power outages for Conectiv Energy. Damage totals to $17.8 million (2003 USD, $20.9 million 2008 USD).[78] Due to the damage, President Bush declares the entire state a disaster area.[79]
