  • The 2017 hurricane season comes to a close

The 2017 hurricane season was also the costliest on record.

Farewell to the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season.

The official 2017 Atlantic hurricane season summary will be released November 30, and final data and reports won't be complete until February, 2018. When it came ashore in Ireland as a post-tropical storm, it was still the strongest storm to do so since 1961. It's only the second season to include two hurricanes making landfall at that intensity. Florida was hit directly three times - by Emily, Irma, and Philippe. Early estimates show Hurricanes Irma and Harvey could cost close to $300 billion in damage.

Hurricane Harvey, which was a named storm from Aug. 17 until August 31, hit the Coastal Bend on August 25, 2017 as a Category 4 storm and the damage was devastating.

This was the most rainfall amount from a single storm in the continental U.S. - The torrential rain overwhelmed Houston and surrounding areas with historic flooding. But the season will be remembered for the deadly trio - Harvey, Irma and Maria - that brought death and destruction to Caribbean nations and the southern U.S.

While Hurricane Ophelia wasn't the strongest storm, it broke a record with a very unusual path.

But, it wasn't the wind that did the major damage with Harvey, it was the rain.

"December storms aren't that rare", said National Hurricane Center hurricane specialist Eric Blake in an email.

CSU said the tropical Atlantic was also much warmer than normal during the peak of the hurricane season.

Mr Dodgson added that the conditions that helped hinder Caribbean hurricane growth between 2014 and 2016 did not affect Bermuda which left the island vulnerable to storms.

The July 5 and August 4 updates continued to increase levels of activity predicted in 2017, calling for 15 named storms, eight hurricanes and three major hurricanes, and 16 named storms, eight hurricanes and three major hurricanes, respectively.
