A strong tropical wave exited the coast of Africa on November 29,one day before the end of the 2008 Atlantic hurricane season. it later strengthened into tropical depression 19.Later the next day it already had tropical storm force winds, so NOAA upgraded it into tropical storm Derkins.It undergoed Rapid Deepening as ittransformed from a tropical storm to a category four hurricane in 48 hours.Dry air and moderate Wind Shear interacted with the storm as it weakened into a category 2 with wind speeds of 110 miles per hour. As the dry air and Shear ceased,it strengthened again into a category four. later on the fourth of December it undergone an Eyewall replacement cycle. However, it was short lived as it reached it's record peak intensity of 200 MPH and 865 millibars, surpassing Hurricane Wilma's pressure of 882 Millibars, and Derkins is the strongest tropical Cyclone ever recorded as of December 1 , 2008.It later made landfall in Cocodrie, Louisiana as a category 3 Hurricane.
