  1. On Thanksgiving Day, there are only a few days left in the 2014 Atlantic Tropical Storm and Hurricane Season with no chance of new storm formation before the official end of the season on November 30. We are truly "Thankful" that the 2014 storm season was relatively uneventful for US coastal involvement. However, we will continue to monitor potential storm formation until well into December.

    The volunteer staff at the Tropical Storm Research Center would like to thank you for your support and kind comments. Please check back in the website main screen and in our Blog section for occasional advisories over the next 6 months and we will be back in mid May, 2015 with Tropical Storm and Hurricane preparedness information for the start of the 2015 Atlantic storm season on June 01.

  2. How many years has it been since a direct hit?
  3. On July 4, 2014, Hurricane Arthur made landfall in the outer banks of North Carolina as a relatively weak Category 2 (100 MPH winds). Arthur made landfall in an area of the outer banks where the time duration over a landmass was fairly short, so damage was minimal. There have been a number of low category hurricanes in recent years but 2005 was a very active year - we all remember what Katrina did to Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. Landfall of Katrina was on August 29, 2005 as a Cat. 3 near the Louisiana-Mississippi border - however, Katrina had been a mid level Cat 5 only 18 hours before landfall.
