Today is the last day of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season. "Unfortunately many of these storms also made landfall". In 2005 there were 28 named storms and 15 hurricanes. Ten hurricanes ripped through the Atlantic this year, hurtling through parts of the U.S. and the Caribbean and thrashing islands in their path, including Barbuda and Puerto Rico.

Another hurricane that devastated the Caribbean, especially Puerto Rico, was Hurricane Maria. In comparison, the average is 12 named storms, six hurricanes, and two major hurricanes. Intensity, or how strong the storm will be, is another major need-to-know factor. It started as a tropical wave coming off Africa near the middle of August and it made landfall late August as a category 4 hurricane near Port Aransas, Texas.

All told, Bloomberg News reported that 2017's storms comprised the most expensive US hurricane season on record, producing an estimated $202.6 billion in damages.

Even once the heart of hurricane season passed, another record-setting storm was still to come.

Nate did cause an estimated $2.5 billion in damages.

As the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season closes, we look back on what was quite an indelible season.

It will go down as the 5th most active hurricane season since records began in 1851 and the most active since 2012. "It only takes one storm to cause great devastation, so being prepared and having a plan is one of the biggest takeaways from this year's storm season". Hurricane Nate was a Category 1 Hurricane, and Cindy, Emily, Phillipe, and Nate were Tropical Storms when they moved onshore.

A wind gust of 68 miles per hour was clocked in downtown Miami and crops were damaged due to the off-season combination of high winds and heavy rain. Together, these satellites will provide a significant boost to hurricane monitoring for the 2018 season. Three major storms impacted the U.S.
