The name Debby has been used for six tropical cyclones in the Atlantic Ocean.

  • Hurricane Debby (1982) reached Category 4 strength, grazed Bermuda, and caused high winds at Cape Race, but no significant damage.
  • Hurricane Debby (1988) reached hurricane strength just before landfall at Tuxpan, Mexico, killing ten, but remained a hurricane for only six hours and later became Tropical Depression 17-E in the Pacific.
  • Tropical Storm Debby (1994) formed near and passed over Saint Lucia, later dissipated over Hispañola; nine deaths were reported, and flooding and mudslides on Saint Lucia were severe.
  • Hurricane Debby (2000) was a disorganized storm that caused minor damage to the Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico, but actually helped relieve a severe Cuban drought.
  • Tropical Storm Debby (2006) formed south of Cape Verde and dissipated in the Central Atlantic.
  • Tropical Storm Debby (2012) formed near the Yucatán peninsula on June 22, 2012; it was a weak tropical storm which made landfall in Florida and then became post-tropical near the Bahamas.
