Here are my comments.

  • " A month later a hurricane made two landfalls in Mexico"
  • "A few weeks later another storm executed a similar track, although it struck Newfoundland as a hurricane and caused damage." How much damage?
    • There aren't any damage totals in 1866. That was before Canada was even a country. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 19:24, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Do you have any info to put in the timeline section? If not, combine the timeline graph with the storms section as done in the 1989 Pacific hurricane season IMO.
    • I think it it's fairly pointless, given the time period. Most of the tracks are just estimates based on a few data points, so it'd be silly to say when it strengthened and weakened. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 19:24, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
  • "At landfall, the minimum barometric pressure was estimated at 969 mbar." How many inches of mercury?
  • Any impact from Hurricane Two other than what's mentioned in the article?
    • I tried, but wasn't surprised given the area and time period. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 19:24, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
  • What was the peak intensity of 4?
    • Added (grudgingly since it was estimated). ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 19:24, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
  • "Late on September 24 the storm was last observed to the north of the island.[2][1]" coomma after 24
  • "The brig "Jarien" encountered the hurricane on September 24 to the west-southwest of the Cape Verde islands."wtf is a brig
  • "The hurricane was last observed on October 5 to the southeast of Atlantic Canada.[1] Along its path through the Turks and Caicos, the Bahamas, and the western Atlantic, the hurricane killed at least 383 people, making it among the 100 deadliest Atlantic hurricanes as of 1997." Why is it as of 1997? Can't you find a newer source?
    • That was when the NHC did their database for all storms that killed more than 25 people. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 19:24, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Nice article!

Track maps for 1866 storms[edit]

I have noticed missing track maps for the individual storms from the 1866 Atlantic hurricane season. Can the individual track maps for storms from that season be added to the Wikimedia Commons tropical cyclone track database? Thanks. CapeVerdeWave 14:52 UTC, 22 March 2007
