(4) Hurricane Maria is considered by many Caribbean islands, including Dominica, to have been the worst storm ever to hit.

Initial predictions for our hurricane season had begun in an El Niño phase, which usually means a less active hurricane season. This marked the tenth consecutive storm to reach hurricane status!

Since Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico in mid-September, the island has struggled to restore water and power. Maria would form just a couple of weeks later.

The 2017 season will certainly be one for the record books and will leave a lasting memory for many.

Of those 17 storms, six storms produced maximum winds of 100 miles per hour or above.

It was the most expensive hurricane season on record, and almost all of which was due to three of the season's major hurricanes - Harvey, Irma, and Maria.

Perhaps the oddest of all was a Groundhog Day tropical storm which carved across South Florida in 1952, the only February U.S. tropical storm or hurricane landfall on record. Mercilessly, all of them made landfall at or very close to their peak intensities. In large part thanks to Harvey, the first landfalling hurricane to hit the Lone Star State since 2008, our view of hurricanes and the tropics is forever changed. The storm dispensed the equivalent of 33 trillion gallons of water on the United States.

Irma will be most remembered for its awful toll in the Caribbean, utterly destroying the island of Barbuda, shredding sections of the Virgin Islands and then knocking out power to much of Florida.

The record number of billion-dollar disasters for an entire calendar year is 16 events set in 2011.

Overall, we had seventeen named storms that formed throughout the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico.

Significant tropical cyclones included Hurricane Harvey, which slammed the Texas coast near Corpus Christi then hovered near Houston for several days as a weaker system, producing all-time record rainfall totals measured in feet.
