Note: The Florida's Worst Hurricanes page is pending. I plan to list a brief summery of some of Florida's most devastating hurricanes, in case you're curious, furious or otherwise intrigued.

It's not pending anymore, and it's been renamed Catastrophic Florida Hurricanes

Induvidual storms[edit]

Is there any way to obtain more info about the individual storms of this season? Weatherman90 16:28, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

What's in the Monthly Weather Review is all we got. -- §HurricaneERIC§Damagesarchive 22:50, 16 March 2006 (UTC)

New Button Bar[edit]

I didnt make that dumb error with the / this time.HurricaneCraze32 14:26, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

I reverted it. Sorry, but the button bar is useless if not every storm is listed. Hurricanehink 14:46, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

ACE Chart[edit]

That chart looks really confusing with the numbers cluttered together. For example, for the first storm, I can't figure out how to differentiate between "1", "26.37" and "13". Don't know, just needs to clear up a bit. RaNdOm26 15:58, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

All fixed-I wrote out the storm numbers.Mitchazenia 16:15, 7 September 2006 (UTC)


This is undoubtedly B-class. However, it could use some images - track maps will work. You can probably bug Nilfanion for those. ;P If it gets images, it may even be A-class material. --Coredesat talk. ^_^ 02:54, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

Cool. Nilfanion added the track maps. Hurricanehink (talk) 19:49, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Inflated damage[edit]

Does anyone know a way to inflate the 1933 USD damage totals to 2006 USD? I know there's some sort of conversion factor, but I don't know what it is. There's also a calculator to inflate damage to 2005 USD, so that could help bring 1933 USD to 2005 USD, but that's as far as I can get. Can someone help? Hurricanehink (talk) 20:33, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Best i found was one for 1800-2005. [1]. There ya go.HurricaneCraze32 aka Mitchazenia 18:29, 2 October 2006 (UTC)

Death toll for Hurricane 14[edit]

The NOAA lists the death toll for Hurricane 14 as sixty-three. The reference they cite for this statistic is Diario de la Marina, a Cuban newspaper. The New York Times, however, reported the death toll as "at least sixty-seven" in an article written the day after the hurricane struck Tampico. Since we don't have the original source for the "sixty-three" figure to look at, I'm going to go with the New York Times' figure (since primary sources trump secondary).

Storm articles[edit]

It seems to me that there's enough info out there to support a seperate article for hurricanes 11 and 15. Anyone want to look into it? -Runningonbrains 22:17, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

Well, it's currently on FAC right now, so if we were to do anything I think it should wait. No sense in making the article unstable right now by adding separate articles. However, yea, it looks like 11 and 15 could have their own articles. Hurricanehink (talk) 23:11, 17 October 2006 (UTC)
I have 11 ready and waiting as the 1933 Brownsville Hurricane.-User:Mitchazenia/1933 Brownsville HurricaneMitchazenia V3.0 16:10, 25 October 2006 (UTC)
You should add more info using the np archive before you publish it. Currently, it's practically a copy of the storm section in the season article. Hurricanehink (talk) 18:45, 25 October 2006 (UTC)
Love to, if it wasn't under mantinence everytime i type in Texas Hurricane (1933).Mitchazenia V3.0 18:56, 25 October 2006 (UTC)
Well, that's one problem. It caused damage in places other than Texas. Hurricanehink (talk) 18:58, 25 October 2006 (UTC)
Everything i type in is a mantinence- and several times gone through search engines.Mitchazenia V3.0 19:01, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

Loved this article, especially the depictions of the paths. so clear and colorful[edit]

Does anyone know who wrote the article? I'm a huge follower of hurricane season and lived in Florida for almost all of my childhood. As an adult, I went through the front end of Katrina in Boca Raton. What the back end did I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.

The locality that the season impinged upon.[edit]

Firstly, this is something of a hobby horse of mine - so please try to tease out the salient point within the verbiage. The Atlantic is a very big mass of water, which fetches up on the coasts of many continents. I realise that this article reflects upon the consequences of the season upon the Atlantic coasts (and inland) of Eastern North America, Central America and possibly Northern South America; but this general locality is not mentioned within the article, and certainly not in the opening paragraph. As with a lot of articles that are associated with the USA or North America, it is simply assumed that people will know which area is being referred to. I do not feel that this is an encyclopedic approach. I hope the major contributors to the article (excellent in every other way, I would comment) would be able to clarify this aspect without disturbing the flow of the text. LessHeard vanU (talk) 13:01, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. I clarified in the first sentence that the article deals with the North Atlantic Ocean, which is the overall area in which the tropical cyclones occurred. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 14:20, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
Great. I further clarified it to western north Atlantic, since the hurricanes did not immediately effect the northern Atlantic shores of Europe/Iberia/North Africa. Once I found your addition placing mine was easy. Cheers. LessHeard vanU (talk) 22:32, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
I wondered about specifying western, but I figured that hurricanes only make landfall in the western Atlantic. Correct assumption? 4u1e (talk) 00:36, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Definition of hurricane season in 1933[edit]

I changed the wording of the dates of the season, and removed the wording of "official," since it does not appear there was such a thing as an official hurricane season this far back in time. If you find references fixing dates to the 1933, please provide references, since this is an FA article. Thegreatdr (talk) 01:18, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Notable fact[edit]

I've noticed that, incredibly, according to HURDAT, hurricanes 11 and 12 made landfall in south Florida and south Texas respectively within 24 hours of each other. Hurricane 12 struck the West Palm Beach area as a low end Category 4/upper end Category 3 at around midnight local time (05Z September 4). Hurricane 11 struck South Padre Island, Texas as a Category 2 almost exactly 24 hours later (+/- 30min). This is confirmed by the MWR report; on Hurricane 12: "The storm center apparently passed directly over Jupiter Inlet, Fla., where there was a lull of 40 minutes beginning near midnight on the 3d." On Hurricane 11: "Brownsville reported a barometer reading of 28.02 inches (949 mbar) at 1:30 am of the 5th, and an estimated maximum wind of 80 mph from the northwest earlier in the night." I've analyzed every season back to 1850 and this is the only time two seperate hurricanes made landfall in the United States in 24 hours or less. That's pretty darn impressive. I think it deserves a place in the article. There are some records even 2005 didn't touch. -- HurricaneERIC - Class of '08: XVII Maius MMVIII 05:47, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Wrong information[edit]

Something must be wrong with this article! The descriptions don't fit with the hurricane numbers, e.g. Hurricane Ten is listed as Cat. 5, however, in the description it says that it peaked at 125 mph, which is only Cat. 3.

In Addition, the ACE numbers seem to be completely wrong. The two Cat. 5 hurricanes have ACEs of 7.08 and 1.47, while Tropical Storm Nineteen has an ACE of 12.75 - that's impossible — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:28, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

It needs to be updated. The entire season was reanalyzed about a month ago. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 13:18, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
