Today we investigate the 2007 atlantic hurricane season, where 17 tropical depressions form 15 of those reached tropical storm status, six hurricanes and two major hurricanes. This season overall was significantly busier and more fatal than the previous season, with 478 total fatalities, and over 3 billion dollars in damages sit back and relax as this 2007 atlanta current season unfold from beginning to end, we begin this atlantic hurricane season with subtropical storm, andrea, Andrea formed off the coast of north carolina and reached hurricane status, even though it’s a subtropical storm interesting. However, it did meander near the coast of florida for a little while, before dissipating and moving off towards the east, really not too much to speak of with this storm, but it is rather interesting its formation and path through the atlantic ocean. Next up we have tropical storm, barry barry formed off the yucatan peninsula, and it did not do too much. It did make landfall, though, in florida and just barely a tropical storm right before landfall, and then what is this riding along the coast of the carolinas and up towards the northeast, where it again made landfall in rhode, island, that’s, interesting moving on, we have tropical storm Chantel chantel formed near bermuda, that’s, really the closest island. We had there a pass towards newfoundland where it’s sped off really quickly and there’s, not too much to speak of there. It gets close to the island of iceland as a obviously mid latitude.

Cyclone. At this point, we’re at 60 degrees, north and not much more to say there next is our most impressive hurricane of the season: hurricane dean. Yes, category 5 hurricane maximum wind speeds 175 miles an hour minimum central pressure, 905 millibars dean just basically tracked westward in the tropical atlantic, of course, and there we can see its hurricane 5 status in that pink color there. It remains a major hurricane for quite some time before making landfall in the yucatan peninsula as a category 5 hurricane emerging at this, the other side, as still a hurricane and making landfall in mexico again as a hurricane dean, was very destructive. Moving on, we have tropical storm erin, which formed in the gulf of mexico, making a path towards the north and west, where it made landfall in texas as a tropical depression, and now here we just see it meandering around the state of texas in oklahoma, where nothing Much occurred there next up is our next major hurricane of the season, felix, which was also a category 5 hurricane with maximum wind speeds at 175 miles an hour. The minimum central pressure was up, though, from the previous major hurricane at 929. Millibars did go ahead and made landfall there as a major hurricane in central america, where it just kind of spent the rest of its time again, another very destructive storm. This season. Moving on, we have tropical storm gabrielle gabrielle made landfall in the cape of north carolina and then sped off towards the north and east.

Next up we have tropical storm. Ingrid and grid is not much to speak of here. It just kind of took its time to cross the open waters of the atlantic, making a close approach to the antilles. Islands here is not much other than a tropical depression or even perhaps an open wave. Next is hurricane umberto, which formed rather quickly becoming a hurricane making landfall in far eastern texas as a category 1 hurricane maximum wind, speed, 90 miles an hour next up tropical depression, 10, not not much there. Next up tropical storm, jerry jerry, was also short lived. Basically, barely a tropical storm and then moving on, we have hurricane karen. We just blew through some names there, but now hurricane karen lasted for a couple days here and peak intensity, just barely hurricane status. At 75 miles an hour. We can see that in the yellow coloring there and it remained a tropical storm for pretty much the rest of its lifetime there. Next up we have hurricane lorenzo which formed in the south western gulf of mexico meandered for a little while then picked a trajectory off towards the west, where it made landfall in mexico. Moving on, we have tropical storm melissa, melissa. We can talk a little bit about here, even though there’s nothing to talk about it was barely a tropical storm with maximum wind speed 40 miles an hour. Minimum central pressure was only a thousand and five millibars and for the rest of melissa’s lifetime.

She kind of just didn’t do much we’ll consider her an open wave at this time. Maximum wind speed was only 25 knots here, so right around 30 miles an hour and it just kind of meandered towards the north and west. Next tropical depression 15, which again lasted for quite some time, not doing much of anything. I would impart this probably on some sheer that the storms were encountering around this time as melissa did occur a couple weeks earlier. However, you know in the central atlantic here shear is definitely going to be an issue. Moving on um noel noel was the next hurricane of the season. Its path is rather interesting tries to go towards the north and west. Then it dips towards the south and west, where it kind of brought some unsettled weather to puerto rico there, and then it decided to dart towards the north and west yet again, and it finally decides it – wants to be a tropical storm at this time and making Landfall on the island of hispaniola and then cuba’s its next target, as it made another weird turn and then off into the atlantic again, where the bahamas are the next threat for the storm, and then it finally becomes a hurricane as it passes the islands of the Bahamas and speeds off towards the north, northeast we’ll call it where it makes landfall in nova scotia as a post tropical storm at this time. Next we have our final storm of the season.

Tropical storm, olga ogre, did not do too much. It was a very late season storm. It did make landfall in puerto rico and the dominican republic, just basically bringing unsettled weather to the islands with some windy conditions. It then just kind of meanders towards the west, where it then turns northward, as it interacts with an upper level low and off towards the north and east that’s it for this season, and i hope you enjoyed this video if you want more videos like this, please, Like this video and subscribe to the channel, so you don’t miss any of the future uploads that i make tracking these hurricane seasons.
