Season Summary

The 2015 Atlantic hurricane season was a near-normal season, the season spawned 15 depressions, 12 named storms, 6 hurricanes and 3 major.

Before the season began, other parts of the globe were experiencing record breaking activity, such as a rather high number of Category-5s for the early half of the year, a higher number of Tropical/Subtropical Cyclones in the Southern Atlantic.. one of the earliest Category-5s on record in the Western Pacific.. many things that pointed to possibly one of the Worst El Ninos on Record.

The Season started with Ana, a weak Hurricane that formed on June 10th.

The Aforementioned Activity later Spread into the Atlantic, where Grace would be added to the Year's high total of Category-5s.

Grace became the first Category-5 to form in the Atlantic since 2007, and the first Major Hurricane to make landfall anywhere in the US since Wilma from 2005

Grace became the strongest storm of the season, at 165 mph (270 km/h), it would later weaken and make landfall in North Carolina as a 115 mph (185 km/h) Category-3 just before Midnight on September 20th.

Later, Ida cut a path through the Caribbean, Peaking as a Strong Category-4 and making several landfalls in Mexico.

The season ended with Larry, a Weak TS that made landfall in Florida, before dissipating on November 3rd.


In All, the season caused $19.52 billion (2015 USD) in damage and killed 458, making 2015 the most destructive season since 2012

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 2015 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).
