Season Summary

The 1995 Atlantic hurricane season was the Second most active atlantic hurricane season ever recorded, only 2005 was more Active.

This season was notable for many reasons, one being one of two seasons so far to use the greek alphabet after exhausting the main list of names. With Three Greek Alphabet names were used during the season.

The season started with the Formation of Allison on June 3rd

Three Category-5 formed during the season, Iris, Luis and Marilyn. with Luis becoming the strongest of the season, peaking at an intense 190 mph (305 km/h)

There was Two Category-5 landfalls in this season, the most in one season.

Iris made a landfall in Mexico as a devastating Category-5

Marilyn made landfall in Miami, FL as a weak Category-5, in a similar situation that was compared to Andrew from Three Years Earlier

Luis reached it's peak intensity in the Caribbean before plowing through Cuba as a Category-3

And Alpha, another Powerful Hurricane, made landfalls in Mexico, the first time as a Category-3, the second at it's peak intensity of 150 mph (240 km/h)

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.


Season effects

This is a table of the storms and their effects in the 1995 Atlantic hurricane season. This table includes the storm's names, duration, peak intensity, Areas affected (bold indicates made landfall in that region at least once), damages, and death totals. Deaths in parentheses are additional and indirect (an example of an indirect death would be a traffic accident), but are still storm-related. Damage and deaths include totals while the storm was extratropical, a wave or a low. All of the damage figures are in 2015 USD (the listed damage figure is in millions).
