Alex kept Hypercane intensity until September 22nd, after that it weakened all the way to a Category 4 with 150 mph winds and a pressure of around 900 mbars. Alex gained some intensity and had a secondary peak of 190 mph which was kept from September 30th to October 3rd. After that it fluctuated in intensity, Ranging between 100 and 550 mph until it dissipated on December 31st in what today is Indianapolis, Indiana.

Hurricane Bailey form in the bay of campeche, 625 miles south of Baja California. It started as Tropical Depression Two-E on July 31st. Strengthening was slow due to Hypercane Alex being ahead of it. After it was upgraded to Category-2, it started creating its own favorable environment for intensifying, this started on June 6th. After being upgraded to Category-3 it developed a massive eye of up to 100 miles wide, but was only upped from a 115 mph Category-3 to a 135 mph Category-4. Soon after, the eye became cloud covered and it shrunk, Bailey was Downgraded to a category-1 as it slowly rebuilt itself after it had its massive eye. While moving at a nice and steady speed of 10 to 15 mph, Bailey recovered from its brand-new eye-wall replacement cycle and was re-upgraded to Category-3, on June 11th, Bailey was further upgraded to Category-5 with peak winds of 160 mph. After Bailey weakened to a Category-1, it started to interact with alex. Bailey later suffered the same fate as Typhoon Canset, Bailey was absorbed by Alex while at Category-1.

Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) Rating
|ACE (104 kt2) – Storm: Source|
ACE is the result of a storm's winds multiplied by how long it lasted for, so storms or subtropical storms (Originally not included up until 2012) that at lasted a long time , as well as particularly strong hurricanes , have higher ACE totals. Tropical Depressions are not included in season total.
