There were also a number of destructive hurricanes during the season, totalling to $11.5 billion (2005 US dollars) in damages and over 100 deaths. Hurricane Erin caused substantial damage in Florida. Felix caused heavy beach erosion in the northeast United States, and produced strong waves that drowned eight. Hurricanes Luis and Marilyn caused billions of dollars in damages in the Leeward Islands and Bermuda. Hurricane Opal, the strongest storm of the season, caused very heavy damage along the U.S. Gulf Coast. Hurricane Roxanne, a rare lateseason major hurricane, caused heavy damage when it made landfall in Quintana Roo.

A satellite image of the Atlantic Ocean on August 24 including Humberto, Iris, Jerry, and two waves that would ultimately become Karen and Luis One reason for the high level of activity was a strong La Niña pattern; in La Niña years, there are weaker upper-level westerly winds, resulting in less wind shear and a more conducive environment to tropical cyclone formation. Warmer-than-normal sea surface temperatures and lower sea level pressures were also highly favorable. These conditions also produced a favorable environment near the coast of the Africa, which is the area that often spawns Cape Verde-type hurricanes; in fact, nearly all of the 1995 storms – with the exception of just two – originated from tropical waves off the west African coastline. There were five major hurricanes for the season, and as many as five storms existed

The 1995 Atlantic hurricane season officially began on June 1, 1995, and lasted until November 30, 1995. These dates conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the Atlantic basin. The 1995 season was extremely active, largely due to favorable conditions including a La Niña and warm sea surface temperatures. Nineteen named storms formed during the season, making it the third most active on record behind the 2005 and 1933 seasons and tied with 1887 season. There were also eleven storms that reached hurricane strength, again the third most hurricanes in one season after the 1969 and 2005 seasons.

from August 22 to September 1 — Humberto, Iris, Jerry, Karen, and Luis. A total of seven storms formed in August — Felix, Gabrielle, Humberto, Iris, Jerry, Karen, and Luis — tying the 1933 record for most in the month; this record was broken in the 2004 Atlantic hurricane season when eight named storms formed during August. This season also went down to the ’T’ named storm. Since the NHC started naming hurricanes, a season had not gotten this far in the list before, and would not again until Tropical Storm Tammy was named during the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season. The 1995 season launched the Atlantic Basin into its current period of high activity.

1995 Atlantic hurricane season
Although Allison had weakened to a tropical storm before making landfall in Florida, it brought a storm surge of 6 to 8 feet (1.8 to 2.4 m) and rainfall up to 6 inches (150 mm). At least 60 homes and businesses were damaged by the storm in Florida and several roadways were washed out. Four tornadoes touched down in the state, one of which was rated as an F1. Total damages in the state amounted to $860,000 (1995 USD). In Georgia, several tornadoes touched down, and heavy rains trigged minor flooding. Damages in the state amounted to $800,000 (1995 USD).[2]

Tropical Storm Barry
Tropical storm (SSHS)

Hurricane Allison
Category 1 hurricane (SSHS) Duration July 5 – July 10 Intensity 70 mph (110 km/h) (1-min), 998 mbar (hPa) The NHC surface analysis found a weak 1019 mbar frontal low between Bermuda and South Carolina.The satellite imagery also revealed that a low-level cloud system center had become better defined just to the west of a small cluster of deep convection, and it is estimated that the frontal low transformed into Tropical Depression Two near 1800 UTC July 6. T.D. Two became a named storm on July 7 off the coast of South Carolina and was given the name Barry. The tropical storm then headed north, making landfall on the eastern tip of Nova Scotia on July 9 and was declared extratropical the next day. No damage or fatalities were reported in association with Barry. [3]

Duration June 2 – June 6 Intensity 75 mph (120 km/h) (1-min), 987 mbar (hPa) Allison formed from a tropical depression that was detected southeast of Cuba on June 2, one of the earliest storm formations within a season on record. Continuing on its northwestern heading, Allison strengthened into a tropical storm on June 3, bringing steady rains and gusty winds to Cuba. Despite upper-level winds, the storm continued to strengthen and Allison became a hurricane on June 4. Hurricane Allison then weakened to a tropical storm before landfall 23 miles (37 km) east of Carrabelle, Florida on June 5; this made Allison the third-earliest storm to make U.S landfall. Allison moved inland and continued northeast, becoming an extratropical storm. The storm skirted the east coast, bringing gusty winds and heavy rains, before passing Nova Scotia as it turned northwestward and dissipating west of Greenland. [1]

Tropical Storm Chantal

1995 Atlantic hurricane season

Hurricane Erin
Category 2 hurricane (SSHS)

Duration July 12 – July 22 Intensity 70 mph (110 km/h) (1-min), 991 mbar (hPa) Chantal originated from a tropical wave that moved off the coast of Africa on July 5. The wave developed a circulation and was declared a tropical depression on July 12. The depression quickly strengthened into Tropical Storm Chantal. Chantal threatened The Bahamas, but re-curved to the north and did not directly affect The Bahamas. Chantal was declared extratropical on July 20 after it affected American shipping lines. No damage or fatalities were reported in association with Chantal. [4]

Tropical Storm Dean
Tropical storm (SSHS)

Duration July 31 – August 6 Intensity 105 mph (165 km/h) (1-min), 974 mbar (hPa) A westward-moving tropical wave, which at times appeared to already be a tropical cyclone, did not develop a closed circulation until July 31, when Tropical Storm Erin formed over the Bahamas. Erin moved to the northwest and strengthened, reaching winds of 85 mph (137 km/h) at its first landfall near Vero Beach, Florida on August 1. Erin downed a number of power lines, but did not cause tremendous damage. The storm emerged over the Gulf the next day, and made landfall a second time on August 3 at Pensacola Beach, Florida, with winds having intensified to 100 mph. Damage in the United States totaled over $700 million. Six drowning deaths are attributed to Erin off the coasts of Florida and the Bahamas. [6]

Tropical Depression Six
Duration July 28 – August 3 Intensity 45 mph (75 km/h) (1-min), 999 mbar (hPa) On July 28, the depression that would become Tropical Storm Dean formed out of a trough in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico. It moved westward, and strengthened into Tropical Storm Dean just 70 miles (110 km) from the Texas coastline on the 30th. Dean made landfall early on the 31st near Freeport with an intensity of 45 mph and a central pressure of 999 mbar. The storm slowly weakened as it moved northwestward, dissipating on August 2 in the center of the state. Dean dropped heavy rainfall amounting to nearly 17 inches (430 mm) in Monroe City. The rainfall resulted in moderate localized damage and the evacuation of 20 families in Chambers County, but the storm caused no injuries or deaths. [5] Tropical depression (SSHS)

Duration August 5 – August 7 Intensity 35 mph (55 km/h) (1-min), 1002 mbar (hPa) The southern part of the tropical wave that spawned Tropical Storm Erin continued into the Caribbean Sea in late July. By August 4, the system had made its way into the Bay of Campeche. The system was named Tropical Depression Six on August 5, and the system slowly moved over Mexico and dissipated on August 6, never reaching tropical storm strength. No reports of damage or casualties have been received. [7]

1995 Atlantic hurricane season

Hurricane Felix
Category 4 hurricane (SSHS)

Hurricane Humberto
Category 2 hurricane (SSHS)

Duration August 8 – August 22 Intensity 140 mph (220 km/h) (1-min), 929 mbar (hPa) The season continued with Cape Verde-type Hurricane Felix, which was named on August 8. It became the first Category 4 hurricane since Hurricane Andrew in 1992 after reaching its peak intensity of 140 mph. [8] Felix would later become extratropical, and was tracked heading towards Norway. Although it never made landfall, Felix caused eight deaths due to drowning along the coasts of North Carolina and New Jersey. Felix is credited with delaying Bermuda’s 1995 independence referendum when it passed within 75 miles (121 km) of the island. [8]

Duration August 22 – September 1 Intensity 110 mph (175 km/h) (1-min), 968 mbar (hPa) Humberto was a Cape Verde-type storm that formed from an African tropical wave on August 22. Humberto became a strong Category 2 hurricane and briefly had a Fujiwhara interaction with Hurricane Iris. Humberto stayed in the open ocean and was absorbed by a low pressure system on September 1 while accelerating northward. [10]

Hurricane Iris
Category 2 hurricane (SSHS)

Tropical Storm Gabrielle
Tropical storm (SSHS) Duration August 22 – September 4 Intensity 110 mph (175 km/h) (1-min), 965 mbar (hPa) Iris formed on August 22, twelve hours after Humberto. Unlike Humberto, Iris would approach land, which meteorologists say was probably due to its Fujiwhara interaction with Humberto. Iris weakened to tropical storm strength, and travelled up the chain of Leeward Islands. Damage reports were sparse, but four deaths were reported on Martinique due to mud slides. On August 30, Iris began its second Fujiwhara interaction, this time with Tropical Storm Karen which it absorbed on September 3. The storm quickly became extratropical, and its motion accelerated. On September 7, Iris reached western Europe as an extratropical storm with wind speeds still at 75 mph (121 km/h). [11]

Duration August 9 – August 12 Intensity 70 mph (110 km/h) (1-min), 988 mbar (hPa) While Felix was approaching hurricane strength, a tropical depression in the Gulf of Mexico organized itself into Tropical Storm Gabrielle. Gabrielle strengthened rapidly, but was too close to land to reach hurricane strength. Landfall was in Mexico, near La Pesca, Tamaulipas, on August 11. No death reports were associated with Gabrielle, and damage was minimal.[9]


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

1995 Atlantic hurricane season
Humberto turned Karen northward, and shortly thereafter began to encounter wind shear from the outflow of Hurricane Iris. Despite this, the storm strengthened slightly to attain peak winds of 50 mph (80 km/h). Due to its Fujiwhara effect with Iris, Karen steadily weakened while revolving around the larger circulation of Iris. On September 2, the storm degenerated into a tropical depression, and the next day Karen was absorbed by Iris a short distance to the east of Bermuda. Karen never affected land; the highest strike probability for the storm was for Bermuda and Halifax, Nova Scotia, both of which were assessed to have a 2% chance of being passed by Karen within 65 miles.

Tropical Storm Jerry
Tropical storm (SSHS)

Duration August 22 – August 28 Intensity 40 mph (65 km/h) (1-min), 1002 mbar (hPa) Tropical Storm Jerry formed just off the Florida coast near Andros Island on August 23 as Tropical Depression Eleven. It made landfall later that day near Jupiter, Florida, with 40 mph winds shortly after reaching tropical storm status.[12] After drifting across the Florida peninsula, Jerry emerged over the Gulf of Mexico, but quickly headed back inland. Jerry dissipated on August 28. While wind damage was relatively mild and the storm was poorly organized, Jerry caused extensive flooding through Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas. Six deaths are attributed to flooding caused by Jerry, and the total damage cost estimate was $46.9 million (1995 USD). [12]

Hurricane Luis
Category 4 hurricane (SSHS)

Tropical Storm Karen
Tropical storm (SSHS)

Duration August 26 – September 3 Intensity 50 mph (85 km/h) (1-min), 1000 mbar (hPa) A tropical wave moved off of Africa on August 23 and gradually developed a broad low pressure area. It gradually organized, and developed into twelfth tropical depression of the season on August 26.[13] Located in an environment of little wind shear, the convection slowly organized,[14] and on August 28 it intensified into Tropical Storm Karen.[13] After tracking steadily west-northwestward, the wake from nearby Hurricane

Duration August 27 – September 11 Intensity 140 mph (220 km/h) (1-min), 935 mbar (hPa) A typical rare and most impressive Cape Verde-type hurricane since Hurricane Hugo, Luis formed on August 29, becoming the fourth concurrent named storm in the Atlantic basin. Luis would intensify as it travelled across the Atlantic, and satellite estimates placed it at Category 4 intensity on September 3. By late September 4 and 5, Luis had reached the Leeward Islands, the center passed 20 miles north of Sint Maarten/Saint Martin as it caused very extensive damage totaling $1.8 billion USD on the small island. It would eventually head north and became a strong extratropical storm over Newfoundland. Luis is officially reported to have killed 16 with numerous missing in the Leeward Islands and 1 in Newfoundland. Damage was substantial, with upwards of half the structures reported damaged on the northern Lesser Antilles. Estimated total damage was $2.5 billion (1995 USD). RMS Queen Elizabeth 2, en route to New York early in the morning of September 11, encountered an

87 foot (29 m) rogue wave generated by Hurricane Luis. Damage to the ship was somewhat minor, and no passengers or crew were injured. Luis affected the Leeward Islands only a week before Hurricane Iris and only ten days before Hurricane Marilyn. [15]

1995 Atlantic hurricane season
north past Bermuda, Marilyn weakened and became extratropical on September 22. Marilyn is directly responsible for eight deaths, most due to drowning on boats or offshore. Ten thousand people were left homeless on the island of St. Thomas, and estimated damages were set at $1.5 billion (1995 USD), making it the most destructive hurricane to hit the Virgin Islands since Hurricane Hugo in 1989. [17]

Tropical Depression Fourteen
Tropical depression (SSHS)

Hurricane Noel
Category 1 hurricane (SSHS)

Duration September 9 – September 13 Intensity 35 mph (55 km/h) (1-min), 1008 mbar (hPa) Tropical Depression Fourteen developed from a distinct tropical wave which exited the coast of Africa on September 4. The system gradually organized and became a tropical depression on September 9. The depression moved toward the northwest and encountered strong upper-level winds which removed the convection from the low-level center on September 13. [16]

Hurricane Marilyn
Category 3 hurricane (SSHS)

Duration September 26 – October 7 Intensity 75 mph (120 km/h) (1-min), 987 mbar (hPa) The origin of Hurricane Noel occurred on September 26, when a tropical depression formed hundreds of miles west of the Cape Verde islands. The cyclone moved in a northward direction for its duration, becoming a tropical storm on September 27 and reaching hurricane strength on September 28. Noel was eventually absorbed by a cold front on October 8 while moving eastward to the south of the Azores. This cyclone marked the second time in the Atlantic basin that the ’N’ name was used since naming began in 1950, the previous being Nana in the 1990 season. Since 1995, the ’N’ name has been used almost every season.

Hurricane Opal
Category 4 hurricane (SSHS) Duration September 12 – September 22 Intensity 115 mph (185 km/h) (1-min), 949 mbar (hPa) Marilyn formed late in the UTC day on September 13, and reached hurricane strength soon thereafter. Marilyn struck the Lesser Antilles on September 14 at Category 1 strength, and intensified to nearly Category 3 strength by the time it reached the U.S. Virgin Islands. A Hurricane Hunter reconnaissance flight reported hail, which is unusual for tropical cyclones. After heading

Duration September 27 – October 5


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Intensity 150 mph (240 km/h) (1-min), 916 mbar (hPa) Hurricane Opal was the strongest storm of the season, and the first to receive an ’O’ name since Atlantic hurricane naming began in 1950. The tropical wave that would become Opal emerged from the west coast of Africa on September 11. The wave would stay disorganized, and did not begin strengthening until it neared the Yucatán Peninsula, becoming a tropical depression on September 27 while 80 miles (130 km) south-southeast of Cozumel. The depression slowly moved over the Yucatan for the next several days, eventually emerging over the Bay of Campeche where it was officially upgraded to tropical storm strength. It rapidly intensified and began moving north across the Gulf of Mexico. Opal reached Category 4 hurricane status, with sustained winds of 150 mph (240 km/h), but weakened to a minimal Category 3 hurricane by the time of landfall at Pensacola Beach, Florida on October 3. Opal killed 59 people: 31 from flooding in Guatemala, 19 in Mexico from flooding, and 9 in the United States. The United States deaths include one in Florida by a tornado, and the other eight from falling trees in Alabama, Georgia, and North Carolina. No deaths were reported from storm surge, which is unusual due to the storm’s strength and the location of landfall. Opal caused $3 billion ($6 billion in 2008 USD) in damage, making it the eighteenth costliest U.S. hurricane when adjusted for inflation, as of the completion of the 2004 hurricane season.[19], [20] It wasn’t until Hurricane Olga in 2001 that a storm received another ’O’ name.

1995 Atlantic hurricane season
Africa to the Atlantic Ocean on October 3. The wave acquired a low- level circulation and became a tropical depression at 1800 UTC on the 4th, while it moved westward at 15 to 20 knots and was centered about 600 n mi southwest of the Cape Verde Islands. Pablo became a tropical storm on the 5th. Its movement was rather fast toward the westnorthwest and then west across the tropical Atlantic for the next three days under the influence of deep easterlies. It is estimated that the storm’s sustained winds reached their maximum value of 50 knots on the 6th and then stayed near 45 knots until the 8th, when the storm encountered very strong vertical shear and quickly dissipated while centered about 135 n mi east-southeast of Barbados. Pablo was the first of four storms to be assigned a name beginning with ’P’ since storm naming began in the Atlantic in 1950; the others were Peter in the 2003 season, Philippe in the 2005 season, and Paloma in the 2008 season. [21]

Hurricane Roxanne
Category 3 hurricane (SSHS)

Tropical Storm Pablo
Tropical storm (SSHS)

Duration October 4 – October 8 Intensity 60 mph (95 km/h) (1-min), 994 mbar (hPa) Pablo was a Cape Verde-type tropical storm that did not affect land. Pablo originated from a tropical wave which moved from

Duration October 7 – October 21 Intensity 115 mph (185 km/h) (1-min), 956 mbar (hPa) Roxanne, the first storm to receive an ’R’ name since Atlantic hurricane naming began in 1950, formed from a tropical depression in the western Caribbean on October 9. It was initially expected to pose a threat to Cuba; however, it turned west and rapidly intensified to Category 3 strength. The storm made landfall just north of Tulum, a small town on the Quintana Roo coast across from the island of Cozumel, with sustained winds near 115 mph (185 km/h). Roxanne emerged over water in the Bay of Campeche as a minimal hurricane, and then meandered in a small area of the bay for almost a week. It eventually weakened to a depression and moved inland.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Roxanne resulted in 14 deaths, with five of them coming from the sinking of a petroleum work barge with 245 people on board. There was massive damage in Mexico across numerous states; the area had been affected by Opal a week before and all damage could not be sorted out from Opal and Roxanne. Damage was estimated at $1.5 billion (1995 USD). [22] It wouldn’t be till Hurricane Rita in 2005 that a storm received an ’R’ name again.

1995 Atlantic hurricane season
beginning with ’T’ since hurricane naming began in the Atlantic basin in 1950. Tanya formed on October 27 in the Central Atlantic. The cyclone initially displayed subtropical characteristics, including comma-shaped convection and winds extending well out from the center. It became more tropical on the 29th as it formed a small eye near the center, indicating it had become a hurricane. A cold front pushed the storm northward, then northeastward. Tanya became extratropical as it neared the Azores on November 2, and quickly crossed through the islands. The extratropical storm continued northeastward, eventually being absorbed by a non-tropical low pressure system on November 3. Tanya was the first tropical cyclone to affect the Azores since Hurricane Charley in 1992. In the Azores, Tanya tore roofs off houses and downed trees, and light posts flew through houses and buildings. Only 1 death (by drowning) was reported, as well as several injuries. [24] The Red Cross and the Portuguese government spent over $6 million (1995 USD) in repairs. The islands of Faial, Pico, Terceira and São Jorge were hardest hit, where the storm sank or damaged numerous boats. The storm also severely disrupted electricity and telecommunications, damaged several houses and caused moderate crop damage. [24] [25] Tanya was the only Atlantic tropical cyclone name that began with "T" until Tropical Storm Tammy in 2005.

Tropical Storm Sebastien
Tropical storm (SSHS)

Duration October 20 – October 25 Intensity 65 mph (100 km/h) (1-min), 1001 mbar (hPa) Tropical Storm Sebastien formed on October 21 about 400 miles (640 km) east of Barbados, but weakened to a tropical depression before approaching the U.S. Virgin Islands from the northeast. No damage was reported as a result of this system.. The remains of Sebastien caused up to four inches (102 mm) of rain in Puerto Rico. Sebastien was the first storm to be assigned a name beginning with ’S’ since hurricane naming began in the Atlantic basin in 1950, and was the only one until Hurricane Stan in the 2005 season. [23]

Michelle, Olga, and Rebekah. The name Michelle, however, was retired after 2001 and replaced with Melissa for the 2007 season. The 1995 season was tied with the 1955 season and 2004 season for the most storm names retired after a single season until the 2005 season, when five names were retired.

Main article: Accumulated Cyclone Energy

The table below shows the ACE for each storm in the season (to three significant digits). The ACE is, broadly speaking, a measure of the power of the hurricane multiplied by the length of time it existed for, so hurricanes that lasted a long time (such as Luis) have higher ACEs. Luis was one of the very few hurricanes since 1950 to have an ACE of over 50 x 104 kt². Source of data; Atlantic Hurricane Database with wind speed information in knots.
