Another Error[edit]

I haven't read through all that much, but in talks with a professor at Dalhousie University, it seems we are both under the impression that the number of Major Storms this year was 8. Now, I have done some research, and have found in the NHC's archives that they clearly state that Hurricane Beta is the 8th MAJOR STORM of the season.

The link can be found at

and I would appreciate for someone to fix it.Sod Aries 21:07, 19 June 2006 (UTC)

I've counted the storms and there seems to be only seven. See List of storms in the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season. --tomf688 (talk - email) 14:31, 21 June 2006 (UTC)
We had this discussion last season too. Major hurricanes: Dennis, Emily, Katrina, Maria, Rita, Wilma, Beta = 7. NSLE 15:21, 21 June 2006 (UTC)
Probably just an error made by the NHC.HurricaneCraze32 21:14, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

Beta's TCR: "A peak intensity of 100 kt was reached around 0600 UTC 30 October, which resulted in the seventh, and last, major hurricane of the 2005 Atlantic season." -- RattleMan 21:34, 24 June 2006 (UTC)

That makes sense. Of the other storms, the closest any of them was to major status was Irene, and that was a mid-range Category 2. CrazyC83 23:32, 14 June 2007 (UTC)
"Among these Category 5 storms were Hurricanes Katrina and Wilma, the former the costliest and the latter the most intense Atlantic hurricane on record." Could someone fix this sentence?65.9.15.183 (talk) 19:55, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
What's wrong with it? -- RattleMan 22:06, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Repeatedly shattering?[edit]

I don't think it makes sense to say `repeatedly shattering previous records' as it does in the opening sentence. Surely you only shatter a single record once and you shatter numerous records, but you can't repeatedly shatter records in a single season? The only way I can see it making sense is if the record was broken by the Atlantic basin during the season, then it was broken again by another basin during the same season, and then broken again by the Atlantic basin.

I have to disagree. To me the statement 'Repeatedly shattering' conveys the idea that a single record was broken multiple times. For instance, according to Wikipedia, the previous record for number of tropical storms was the 1933 hurricane season with 21 storms. The 2005 season broke this record with the formation of alpha and then broke the record again with the formation of beta, hence the record was broken repeatedly Tmckeage (talk) 17:31, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
If this is not the case I would recommend changing the sentence to read `shattering numerous records' to indicate several records were broken as indicated in the #Records_and_notable_events section.

Furthermore, the use of `previous' is superfluous as you can't shatter anything other than a previous record. It doesn't make sense to shatter future records. schroding79 (talk) 01:27, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Minor, but I agree, should be changed to "Repeatedly shattering multiple records" Tmckeage (talk) 17:38, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
Indeed not, one among many English prose boners - these hurricane articles may be rich in facts, but they are terribly written (really, average high-school level prose) and over-linked. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Antimatter33 (talkcontribs) 08:22, 9 August 2012 (UTC)

1950 loses majors record in reanalysis[edit]

With the recent 1950 reanalysis lowering the number of majors from eight to six, does 2005 gain a new record for number of majors? -- 140.202.10.134 (talk) 20:36, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

It would appear so! ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 22:15, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
