The season started early with a hurricane forming in the western Caribbean Sea on June 10. The storm moved northeastward, bringing rain and winds to Jamaica and Cuba before dissipating on June 14. The storm is believed to have caused disastrous flooding in Jamaica and Cuba. Some places in the mountains of Jamaica reported over 10 inches (250 mm) of rainfall on June 13. 87 people were reported killed in Cuban floods but the extent of the damage there is unknown.
After a three month lull, a tropical storm formed east of the Lesser Antilles on September 8, headed northwestward, and eventually hit the Myrtle Beach area as a Category 1 hurricane on September 14. This hurricane wind gusts in excess of 100 mph while a powerful extratropical cyclone moving up the eastern seaboard. New England suffered significant damage and "considerable loss of life" but no casualty figure is known to exist. Damage to shipping was also heavy. Property damage amounted to at least $1 million (1904 dollars). The vast majority of this damage occurred after the storm lost tropical characteristics.
October saw three storms, the first of which formed south-southeast of Jamaica on October 12. It hit the Sancti Spíritus Province in Cuba as a Category 1 hurricane, and later hit near Homestead, Florida. After looping around the state, the storm dissipated over the Bahamas on October 21. The storm brought hurricane conditions to south Florida but damage was largely restricted to downed trees and telegraph poles. Three sailing vessels were wrecked in the storm, the British Melrose, German Zion and the American James Judge. The crews of Zion and James Judge reached shore safely, but the Melrose sank offshore in heavy seas with the loss of seven crewmen. The survivors were left clinging to wreckage for nearly four days before being rescued.
