Thursday marks the end of one of the most active Atlantic hurricane seasons on record. Here’s a recap, by the numbers:
17: Number of named storms in the Atlantic: Arlene, Bret, Cindy, Don, Emily, Franklin, Gert, Harvey, Irma, Jose, Katia, Lee, Maria, Nate, Ophelia, Philippe and Rina. Of those, 10 became hurricanes. This year’s names were recycled from 2005, the most active year, which had 27 named storms.
3: Number of Category 4 hurricanes that struck the United States — Harvey, Irma and Maria. This was the first hurricane season since satellites began tracking storms in the 1960s that more than one Category 4 storm made U.S. landfall.
185 mph: Maximum wind speed during Irma. The hurricane maintained its 185 mph winds for 37 hours and was a Category 5 storm — with wind speeds above 157 mph — for three days.
60.58: Highest amount of rainfall in inches from Hurricane Harvey.
4,323: Number of days between landfalls of hurricanes Harvey and Wilma, which had been the last major hurricane to strike the United States until Harvey.
464: Minimum number of total hurricane-related deaths, with about 80 dead after Harvey. In Puerto Rico, the official death toll stands at about 66, but the actual count could be much higher since hundreds of bodies were cremated immediately after Hurricane Maria.
$370 billion: Estimated cost of damage worldwide caused during the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season. More than $190 billion in damage has been blamed on Harvey alone, making the storm the costliest in terms of property damage.
