Allen reached 190mph. The storm details say it reached Cat 5 three times. So why does the introduction say "at Category 4 strength or stronger"? Is this a disputed landfall strength as opposed to peak strength or something?

Also ACE page says season had 11/9/2. Which was the other major hurricane? Only Ivan indicates Cat 2; none of the other storms say anything about their peak strength. I think this leaves the impression they are all Cat 1. crandles 13:15, 28 October 2005 (UTC)

Added Frances's peak windspeed of 115mph. crandles 17:57, 29 October 2005 (UTC)

Images for each storm[edit]

Wow, I got lucky. I didn't think the MWR had all of them. Well, there you go, another year down. Hurricanehink 14:09, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

Good work. I uploaded 1978 as well. Hurricanehink 01:09, 26 January 2006 (UTC)
I've noticed it. Maybe I will do it tomorrow. juan andrés 02:00, 26 January 2006 (UTC)
By the way, are there any pictures of Allen other than the radar one that can be accepted? I found this one in the same report as the others. It has Allen before its peak intensity. http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Hurricane_Allen.JPG Jake52
Sure. Personally, I don't like infrared at all. Hurricanehink 02:21, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

I think at least one must be missing. Hurricane Frances should be the 10th tropical depression, so another one must be between that and Allen. Potapych (talk) 02:09, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
Er, wait. Maybe not. Potapych (talk) 02:15, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Three additional depressions are noted in the NOAA's records - two before Allen (in addition to TD 1) and one between Ivan and Jeanne. These should be added to the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 147.9.203.187 (talk) 06:51, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

I'm reviewing the article. Yay! Bruvtakesover (T|C) 22:19, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Lead
  • Instead of 15 use fifteen since you use that style in the rest of the article.
Season summary
  • This section looks good. However, you do not need to link Hermine in this section since you already have in the lead.
Storms
  • There is one thing holding this section back.. most of the sections start with 'A tropical wave exited the west coast of Africa. Anything you could change it to?
Storm names
  • Looking good.
References
  • No need to link National Climatic Data Center over and over again, only needed for the first use.
  • The rest of the references look good.

I will just wait for you to fix the things I have brought up before I pass or fail this article. Bruvtakesover (T|C) 19:51, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

I have fixed/addressed all of your issues!--12george1 (talk) 19:35, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
Thank you... passing the article! Bruvtakesover (T|C) 19:45, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Timeline?[edit]

The timeline is the only article that's holding up this from becoming a good topic. Does anyone plan on working on that? Would anyone mind if it gets merged? There's barely additional content in the timeline article, and it doesn't seem like a good fit for this season (not too many storms, few concurrent storms). Any thoughts? ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 17:02, 18 September 2015 (UTC)
