A tropical wave exited out of Africa in late June. As the wave moved westward, it strengthened, becoming a tropical depression on June 30. The depression strengthened further, and became a tropical storm the next day. It started to curved northwards on July 2. As it moved northwards, it intensified, peaking as a 120 mph Category 3 hurricane on the 4 in the open Atlantic. After peaking, Anna gradually weakened, until it dissipated in the open Atlantic on the 9. Anna did cause any deaths or damages.

Bob followed a similar path to Anna's. A wave exited out of Africa in late July. Moving over warm water, the wave strengthened, and became a depression on July 27. The depression became a tropical storm later that day. Bob moved to the northwest, heading towards Bermuda. Along the way, it intensified, peaking as a 120 mph Category 3 hurricane on August 2. After peaking, it weakened due to wind shear. It brushed Bermuda as a tropical storm on the 5. After brushing, Bob was almost stationary in the north Atlantic due to another system of low pressure. After the lo moved towards Europe on the 7, Bob continued north, becoming extratropical on the 12. Bob did not cause any deaths or damages in Bermuda.
