On June 1, a tropical disturbance developed 420 miles south of Key West, Florida. The next day, a closed circulation developed inside the storm's core. NOAA scientists believed that it would develop further into a hurricane and named it "Andrew", but the depression only attained tropical storm status. It became stationary for the next six days and then dissipated. The storm is notable, as it never caused any landfall. A ship was tossed about in the Gulf of Mexico in the storm's wake, and was crashed into some rocks. 2 crew members have been killed.
On June 6, a thunderstorm spawned near Kingston, Jamaica. The thunderstorm became more organized and moved out to the Gulf of Mexico a day later. On June 7, the storm became the second invest of the year, and continued to deepen until it attained tropical depression status. The depression slowly worsened into a tropical storm and was named "Betty" by NOAA. Betty became a hurricane the next day. An atmospheric trough moved the storm through the gulf and the storm made landfall over the Bahamas. Up to two inches of rain have been reported in low-lying areas of Nassau. The storm strengthened and attained Category 2, but began losing power. Once it hit Mexico City on the tenth, flooding from the hurricane began affecting the city.
Two hundred households have been ruined by the floodwaters, but only 1 died. Mexico City airport has been closed, after severe turbulence forced planes not to fly. After making landfall in Mexico, the storm started slowly to die out, but still had winds of 105 MPH. Currents in the air moved it north, and the storm, now a tropical storm, made landfall in Galveston, Texas. It dissipated on the fifteenth after making long contact with land. In Galveston, damage has been reported up to $130 million, with many homes being destroyed by a storm surge. Noone died in Galveston. The dissipated storm formed some remnants which tracked across the southern United States and retreated back into the Gulf of Mexico.
