  • "was one of few seasons" - say how many, and say "on record"
  • "The first system, Hurricane One" - seems kinda redundant, since we know every storm was a hurricane. Why not - "The first hurricane"?
  • "Two of the cyclones has only " --> "has" --> "have"
  • Why does the strongest storm in the infobox not have mph?
  • Why no mention of H1's peak winds in the prose?
  • H2 looks like it formed closer to Newfoundland than Azores. Perhaps mention that distance as well?
  • It's closer to the Azores. Do I still need to mention both distances?--12george1 (talk) 02:51, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
  • For duration for those single point storms, perhaps just list the one day?
  • The infoboxes will not allow that. You are left with a dash.--12george1 (talk) 05:30, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
  • "It is believed that a tropical storm developed on September 14" - where?
  • Doesn't the preceding sentence make its location obvious?--12george1 (talk) 05:30, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
  • " and dissipated later that day about 350 mi (565 km) off Novia Scotia" - first, typo, and second, it looks closer to Newfoundland
  • H5 peak intensity?
  • "Later on October 23, it passed just west of Bermuda,[5] bring gale force winds and rough seas to the island, damaging several vessels." - poor grammar

All in all a good read for such an old season. Lemme know when you get these comments and I'll pass! ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 03:07, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
