ACE is the result of a storm's winds multiplied by how long it lasted for, so storms that lasted a long time , as well as particularly strong hurricanes , have higher ACE totals. 1998 was hyper active in these terms; with an ACE total of 350. Tropical Depressions and Subtropical storms are not included in season totals, So Subtropical Storm Charley is not included.








Season effects

This is a table of the storms and their effects in the 1998 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 1998 USD (the listed damage figure is in millions).
