15235 HR NC3 

The M=33 entry on the first line means it lasted for 33 days (though this includes time as an extratropical storm).

The first line's entry shows the storm emerging on 8/03 at 12AM as a 35-knot storm (I think 35knots is a TS...but by 6AM it was a 45knot storm, definitely a TS). The third-to-last line shows that on 9/03 at 6PM it was still a 65-knot hurricane. On the second-to-last line the storm is extratropical but still at 60 knots at 12AM (and drops to 45 knots by 6PM).

August has 31 days...so it looks to me like this storm existed for 31.75 days (plus another day as extratropical gives their total of 33). Note that the hurdat data is not really "official" but is a research product (though it's probably more accurate than the official data in many cases). Jdorje 18:41, 29 October 2005 (UTC)

According to UNISYS, it spent 34 full days as anything (midnight on August 3 to midnight on September 4). Minus 5 full days as an extratropical storm = 29 days as a tropical cyclone. Only 18 of those were consecutive. Ginger spent 27 consecutive days as a tropical cyclone. That far out-classes this storm, but regardless, it is amazing. 29 days spent as a tropical system. Wow! -- Hurricane Eric - my dropsonde - archive 03:37, 1 November 2005 (UTC)
Midnight on August 3 to midnight on September 4 is only 32 days according to my calculations. Jdorje 20:22, 30 December 2005 (UTC)
This is one storm that should be re-evaluated. I think it was a Category 5 hurricane at least once in the open Atlantic...unfortunately 106-year-old technology wouldn't be able to prove it! CrazyC83 18:59, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

NC landfall[edit]

Also noteworthy, you can see that it made landfall around Cape Hatteras as a category 3 storm. This is fairly notable but isn't mentioned anywhere in the article. Jdorje 18:42, 29 October 2005 (UTC)

Indeed. It was moving pretty slow too at the time. -- Hurricane Eric - my dropsonde - archive 03:38, 1 November 2005 (UTC)

Name[edit]

Shouldn't "San Ciriaco" come before "hurricane"? -- Hurricane Eric - my dropsonde - archive 02:18, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

I think in Spanish it does not. See Hurricane San Felipe Segundo also. Jdorje 21:03, 5 January 2006 (UTC)
But in English it would be "1899 San Ciriaco hurricane"; this would also be closer to Wikipedia convention on naming historical events (eg 2001 southern Peru earthquake or 2007 United Kingdom floods). Totnesmartin (talk) 14:24, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
I think with the 1899 in there, we have to do the English way. I'd imagine that it would be Huracan San Felipe Segundo (de 1928) in Spanish. Would anyone be opposed to moving this to 1899 San Ciriaco hurricane? ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 15:03, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Anyone watching this page have any thoughts? I think the current title is rather awkward. I think either it should be a standalone title of Hurricane San Ciriaco, or the year should be put at the end. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 19:05, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

I'd agree with moving it, since the current title seems like an unattractive mix of Spanish and English naming conventions. Juliancolton (talk) 15:35, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

So exactly what are you proposing? Seems in 2008 you proposed it be moved to its current 1899 San Ciriaco hurricane title. Are you now proposing it still be moved once more yet to Hurricane San Ciriaco? If so, how is the 2008 rationale no longer valid? Regards, Mercy11 (talk) 22:06, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

No, I still like the sound of "1899 San Ciriaco hurricane", as I did two years ago. I think the current title is awkward and doesn't sound right. Hurricanehink (talk) 05:37, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
OK, go for it! There are no objections and, in any event, "1899 San Ciriaco hurricane" does run smoother. One thing, let's make sure the new title has a lower case "h" in hurricane (as you already correctly included). Mercy11 (talk) 23:01, 15 July 2010 (UTC)
KL, that move change was five years in the making. --Hurricanehink (talk) 23:43, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

Todo[edit]

This article has very little actual notable info. More impact is needed. Jdorje 19:53, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

As I stated in summary, I've added temp. space breaks to make the article look less knotted. I also added a surface weather analysis from the NOAA documents library. Hurricane Angel Saki My own personal NHC 03:28, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

"See also" immigration to Hawaii?[edit]

Why this there a "see also" for Puerto Rican Immigration to Hawaii? That's the only mention of Hawaii anywhere on the page. (I'm not linking in case someone was trying to increase the number of inward links to that page, relevant or not.) Vicki Rosenzweig (talk) 03:25, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

I am not sure I know enough about this part of the history, but the answer is *probably* because, since at the time both Hawaii and Puerto Rico were U.S. territories, and both grew sugar as a major agricultural crop, upon Hurricane San Ciriaco hitting Puerto Rico, it initiate a large labor force migration from Puerto Rico to Hawaii. My somewhat educated guess. You can see this at the Puerto Rican immigration to Hawaii article, although -- admittedly -- that article does not do an excellent job at showing that cause/effect relationship as it lacks a good and smooth transition from one (San Ciriaco) to the other (the immigration). BTW, the Hawaii article does make this connection, and in a much clearer fashion. My name is Mercy11 (talk) 03:44, 29 September 2012 (UTC), and I approve this message.
