Four of these storms became hurricanes and in addition, there was one tropical depression which did not reach tropical storm strength. On September 30 Lili became a hurricane while passing over the Cayman Islands.

Notable tropical systems in 2002 include Hurricane Isidore and Lili in September for their intensity, and Hurricane Kyle, also in September, for its duration. [57] Beginning in 2002, subtropical cyclones were named from the standard predetermined naming list upon gaining gale-force winds. Hurricane Isidore was the ninth named storm and the second hurricane in the 2002 Atlantic hurricane season.Isidore was the fifth of eight named storms to occur in September. Hurricane Gustav, shown in the satellite image to the right, was a subtropical storm on September 8th and touched Cape Hatteras, NC on the 10th, The most intense hurricane of the 2002 season so far developed in late September, though did not reach peak instensity until early October. Overall, damage was very minor, totaling to $200,000 (2002 USD) in damage. Minor flooding was reported, which caused light damage to a few businesses, 15 to 25 houses, and some roadways. NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information, State of the Climate: Tropical Cyclones for September 2002, published online October 2002, retrieved on December 13, 2020 from, https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/sotc/tropical-cyclones/200209, November Global Release: Mon, 14 Dec 2020, 11:00 AM EST, https://data.nodc.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/iso?id=gov.noaa.ncdc:C00775. In Atlantic Canada, the hurricane and its remnants brought heavy rain, tropical storm and hurricane-force winds, as well as storm surges for several days. However, cooler waters and upper level shear caused it to weaken. [26], A tropical wave exited Africa on September 1, and after initial development became disorganized. No casualties were reported, and damage was minimal. Kyle was the third longest lived tropical cyclone in the Atlantic basin after Ginger of 1971 and Inga of 1969. The three new names were used for Atlantic storms for the first time. Tropical Storm Dolly, which formed in August also persisted into September. Precipitation from the storm peaked at 10.25 inches (260 mm) in Norwood, Louisiana. This was first demonstrated with Gustav, which originated as a subtropical cyclone and was named from the predetermined list before becoming tropical and intensifying into a hurricane. [35] To the east on Dauphin Island, Alabama, the storm caused coastal flooding which closed roads and forced the evacuation of residents. The three new names were used for Atlantic storms for the first time. The storm also caused six tornadoes, up to 20 in (510 mm) of rain, and extended periods of tropical storm force winds. The season was less destructive than normal, causing an estimated $2.47 billion (2002 USD) in property damage and 23 fatalities. The storm weakened as it turned west-southwestward, and made landfall near Ormond Beach, Florida on September 5 as a minimal tropical storm. Home » Geologic Hazards » Tropical Storm Names. [9] The precursor system produced up to 4.49 in (114 mm) of rainfall in Weston, Florida. The disorganized storm moved westward, then northward, where it strengthened into Tropical Storm Hanna later that day. This included a 58 percent chance of at least one major hurricane strike on the East Coast, including the Florida peninsula, and a 43 percent chance of at least one such strike on the Gulf Coast from the Florida Panhandle westward. Florida received high wind gusts, heavy rainfall, and strong surf that resulted in the deaths of three swimmers. [25] 1,575 houses were damaged from the flooding or tornadic damage, 23 severely, amounting to $4.5 million (2002 USD) in damage. [23] Though it was a tropical storm at landfall, winds were light across the path of the storm over land. Minimal impact was reported, which was limited to locally heavy rains over portions of Jamaica, Cuba, and the Cayman Islands.[56]. The 2002 list was taken from the 1996 season with the substitution of Cristobal, Fay, and Hanna for Cesar, Fran, and Hortense respectively. [17] Six hours later, the depression was upgraded to Tropical Storm Dolly after developing sufficient outflow and curved banding features. The most intense hurricane of the season was Hurricane Isidore with a minimum central pressure of 934 mbar, although Hurricane Lili attained higher winds and peaked at Category 4 whereas Isidore only reached Category 3. [39] Despite dropping over 30 inches (760 mm) of rainfall among other effects,[40] only two indirect deaths were reported there. The depression never affected land. It developed a low level cloud circulation midway between Africa and the Lesser Antilles on September 20. 2001 Hurricanes : 2002 Hurricanes : 2003 Hurricanes : 2004 Hurricanes: 2005 Hurricanes ... 2006 Hurricane Names. [24] The storm caused moderate flooding in some areas due to high rainfall amounts, which left about 400 homes with some form of damage. Kyle drifted slowly westward, slowly strengthening, and reached hurricane strength on September 25; it weakened back into a tropical storm on September 28. [14], The interaction between the extratropical remnant and a high pressure system produced strong rip currents along the coastline of Long Island. Hurricane Isabel was the strongest Atlantic hurricane since Mitch, and the deadliest, costliest, and most intense hurricane in the 2003 Atlantic hurricane season.The ninth named storm, fifth hurricane, and second major hurricane of the season, Isabel formed near the Cape Verde Islands from a tropical wave on September 6, in the tropical Atlantic Ocean. Looking at the numbers from 2002, there were 12 named storms, only 4 hurricanes, and 2 major hurricanes. It continued westward, affecting the Lesser Antilles as a tropical storm, then entered the Caribbean. The following names were used on named storms that formed in the North Atlantic during the 2002 season. (When a name is retired, it’s replaced by a new name.) What are the hurricane names for 2016 in the Atlantic basin? It listed an 86 percent chance of at least one major hurricane striking the U.S. mainland. September 2002 was the most active month of any year on record with the formation of eight named storms. [22], In early September, a low pressure center developed along a trough of low pressure, and on September 5, the system had gained sufficient organization to be a tropical depression, to the southeast of Galveston. The 2002 list was taken from the 1996 season with the substitution of Cristobal, Fay, and Hanna for Cesar, Fran, and Hortense respectively. A total of 237,000 people lost power, and oil rigs offshore were shut down for up to a week. [35], Because most of the associated convective activity was east of the center of circulation, minimal damage was reported in Louisiana and Mississippi. The cyclone's strength continued to fluctuate between tropical depression and tropical storm several times. (taken from AccuWeather.com) To Track the current tropical storms click here This is a cumulative list of previously used tropical cyclone (tropical storm and hurricane) … The depression drifted south-southwest while strengthening into Tropical Storm Fay, reaching its peak strength of 60 mph (95 km/h) on the morning of September 6. It was one of only sixteen known hurricanes in the East Pacific east of the International Date Line to have reached such an intensity. Names like Katrina (2005), Joaquin (2015), Irma (2017), Maria (2017) and Florence (2018) have been retired. The use of easily remembered names greatly reduces confusionwhen two or moretropical storms occur at the same time. Main article: Tropical Storm Cristobal (2002) Tropical Storm Cristobal was a cyclone that formed in August 2002. It stayed away from land for most of its life. For example, one hurricane canbe moving slowly westward in the Gulf of Mexico, while at exactlythe same time another hurricane can be moving rapidly northward alongthe Atlantic coast. [49] However, the remnants of Kyle contributed to one indirect death in the British Isles. The first hurricane of the 2002 season developed in early September. As it. On September 8, the system gained sufficient organization to be declared a subtropical depression off the Southeast United States coast; later that day, the system was named Subtropical Storm Gustav. Arthur formed out of a tropical depression off the coast of North Carolina on July 14 from a decaying frontal zone. The 2002 Atlantic hurricane season was a near-average Atlantic hurricane season. The storm meandered eastward and was absorbed by a front on August 9. Hurricane Lili, shown in the satellite image to the right, began as a tropical depression on September 13th approximately 1,000 miles west of the Lesser Antilles. [55], A weak tropical wave moved through the Lesser Antilles on October 9. Names can be repeated after an interval of six years, but the names of especially severe storms are permanently retired from use. The storm developed from a tropical disturbance in the open Atlantic on September 21. [57] The list was used again in the 2008 Atlantic hurricane season with the exception of Isidore and Lili, which were retired by the World Meteorological Organization on March 30, 2003; they were replaced with Ike and Laura, respectively. Most destruction was due to Isidore, which caused about $1.28 billion (2002 USD) in damage and killed seven people in the Yucatán Peninsula and later the United States, and Hurricane Lili, which caused $1.16 billion (2002 USD) in damage and 15 deaths as it crossed the Caribbean Sea and eventually made landfall in Louisiana. In total, 400 houses sustained damage from flooding. The only time that there is a change in the list is if a storm is so deadlyor costly that the future use of its name on a dif… There are separate lists and names for hurricanes in the Eastern ... (2002… Floodwaters forced the evacuation of a nursing home and several mobile homes in South Carolina. [42], A non-tropical low developed along a dissipating stationary front on September 16 in the central Atlantic and drifted north-northeastward. [32] Localized flooding was reported in areas of Prince Edward Island, and 4,000 people in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island were left without power. The names not retired this year were used again in the 2008 Atlantic hurricane season. [12], On August 5, Tropical Depression Three formed off the coast of South Carolina from a surface trough of low pressure – the same trough that spawned Tropical Storm Bertha in the Gulf of Mexico. It became Subtropical Storm Kyle the next day, and Tropical Storm Kyle on September 22. Convection steadily deepened on September 11 east of the upper level low and the surface low; it was classified as Tropical Depression Nine the next day. [43] The National Hurricane Center classified it as Tropical Depression Eleven on September 17 about 710 mi (1,150 km) east of Bermuda, and initially the depression did not have significant deep convection. Forming on July 23 from a tropical wave, the storm rapidly intensified from a tropical depression into a Category 5 hurricane in two days, and lasted for only six hours at that intensity before weakening. On September 19, it intensified into a hurricane, and Isidore made landfall in western Cuba as a Category 1 storm. For that reason, the World Meteorological Organization develops a list of names that are assigned in alphabetical order to tropical storms as they are discovered in each hurricane season. [35], On September 9, a tropical wave moved off the coast of Africa, and by September 14 it was classified as a tropical depression. Atlantic Pronunciation Guide (PDF) Since 1953, Atlantic tropical storms had been named from lists originatedby the National Hurricane Center. Kyle continued out to sea where it merged with a cold front on October 12, becoming the fourth longest-lived Atlantic hurricane. Before Hurricane Ivan hit Alabama and northwest Florida, Category 4 Hurricane Charley struck southwest Florida, just west of Ft. Myers, on August 13, 2004. Several roads were flooded from moderate precipitation. Meteorologist Jason Meyers goes over the names and their (sometimes unusual) pronunciations. Baby boomer names that have stayed in style; Police: 2 … Bertha weakened to a tropical depression, but retained its circulation over Louisiana. The interaction between Gustav and a non-tropical system produced strong winds that caused an additional $240,000 (2002 USD) in damage in New England, but this damage was not directly attributed to the hurricane. While crossing the island, the depression was absorbed by a cold front early on October 17. The next day, the system had become sufficiently organized to classify the system as a tropical depression about 900 nautical miles (1,700 km) east of the Windward Islands. [53], On September 16, a tropical wave moved off the coast of Africa and across the Atlantic. [22], Tropical Storm Edouard dropped moderate rainfall across Florida, peaking at 7.64 inches (194 mm) in DeSoto County. [37] The heavy rainfall progressed into Georgia, where significant flooding occurred. [44] A wind report early on September 18 indicated the depression intensified into Tropical Storm Josephine. On August 7, it became Tropical Storm Cristobal, and reached a peak of 50 mph (80 km/h) on August 8. [52] Overall damage totaled about $5 million (2002 USD), and no direct deaths were reported. By 1600 UTC on October 16, the depression made landfall near Cienfuegos, Cuba with winds of 30 mph (45 km/h). The storm also caused waves of three to four ft (1.2 m) in height. Outflow from the stronger Tropical Storm Fay caused Tropical Depression Edouard to weaken further, and Edouard was eventually absorbed by Fay. [50] Moderate rainfall accompanied its two landfalls in the United States,[51] causing localized flash flooding and road closures. Black Background, color-filled rainfall graphic for Isidore. They are now maintained and updated througha strict procedure by an international committee of the World Meteorological Organization. Deaths in parentheses are additional and indirect (an example of an indirect death would be a traffic accident), but were still related to that storm. Over the next two days, the low significantly organized, and became Tropical Depression Fourteen at 1200 UTC on October 14. The tropical cyclone peaked as a Category 3 hurricane, causing damage as well as four fatalities in Jamaica, Cuba, Mexico, and the United States. Although heavy waves were able to reach the [12], Across the Gulf Coast of the United States, Bertha dropped light to moderate rainfall; most areas received less than 3 inches (76 mm). Here is the list of names for the current hurricane season. (December 23, 2003), Timeline of the 2002 Atlantic hurricane season, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, "Extended range forecast of Atlantic seasonal hurricane activity and US landfall strike probability for 2002", "Background Information: The North Atlantic Hurricane Season", "NOAA: 2002 Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook", "Updated Forecast of Atlantic Seasonal Hurricane Activity and U.S. Landfall Strike Probability for 2002", "Colorado State Team issues first Post-August storm season update and September-only hurricane forecast – Reduces prediction", "Atlantic basin Comparison of Original and Revised HURDAT", "Tropical Storm Arthur Tropical Cyclone Report", "Tropical Storm Arthur – July 9–15, 2002", "A Climatology of Hurricanes for Canada: Improving Our Awareness of the Threat", "Tropical Storm Bertha Tropical Cyclone Report", "Tropical Storm Cristobal Tropical Cyclone Report", "Tropical Storm Dolly Tropical Cyclone Report", "Tropical Depression Four Discussion One", "Tropical Storm Edouard Tropical Cyclone Report", "Tropical Storm Fay Tropical Cyclone Report", "Tropical Depression Seven Tropical Cyclone Report", "Tropical Depression Seven Discussion One", "Tropical Depression Seven Discussion Two", "Tropical Depression Seven Discussion Four", "Hurricane Gustav Tropical Cyclone Report", "Newfoundland hit with heavy rain, Gustav leaves land", "Tropical Storm Hanna Tropical Cyclone Report", "Tropical Storm Event Report for Alabama", "Hanna washes ashore, quickly weakens in Alabama", "Hurricane Isidore Tropical Cyclone Report", "Principales desastres naturales, 1980–2005". Damage and deaths include totals while the storm was extratropical, a wave, or a low, and all of the damage figures are in 2002 USD. [54], In Louisiana, wind gusts reaching 120 mph (190 km/h), coupled with over 6 inches (150 mm) of rainfall and a storm surge of 12 feet (3.7 m), caused $1.1 billion (2002 USD) in damage. ... Hurricane Pauline of 1997, and Hurricane Kenna of 2002… Hurricane Elida was the first hurricane of the 2002 Pacific hurricane season to reach Category 5 strength on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale. Bertha moved westward, and made a second landfall near Kingsville, Texas on August 9, having made no significant gain in strength. The list was used again in the 2008 Atlantic hurricane season with the exception of Isidore and Lili, which were retired by the World Meteorological O… [3], On August 7, 2002, Gray's team lowered its season estimate to 9 named storms, with 4 becoming hurricanes and 1 becoming a major hurricane, noting that conditions had become less favorable for storms than they had been earlier in the year. [27] At the time, the depression had persistent convection around a small circulation, and it moved steadily westward due to a ridge to its north. [47] Later that day Josephine transitioned into an extratropical cyclone and suddenly intensified to winds of 60 mph (95 km/h). 2005 saw the most names retired in one year with five; 2017 saw four names … The season's low activity is reflected in the low cumulative accumulated cyclone energy (ACE) rating of 67. Names of particularly destructive hurricanes are generally removed from the list and replaced with a new name, beginning with the same letter, to be used six years later. Crop damage was extensive, and over 300 structures were damaged by the flooding. [27], An area of unsettled weather developed between the Bahamas and Bermuda on September 6, and over the next few days convection increased in intensity and coverage. Kyle spawned at least four tornadoes,[49] the costliest of which struck Georgetown, South Carolina; it damaged 106 buildings and destroyed seven others, causing eight injuries. No deaths are attributed to Fay. [31] The storm dissipated shortly after as strong wind shear continued to cause the storm to deteriorate while located 980 mi (1580 mi) southeast of Bermuda. [13] In addition, one death was reported due to Bertha, a drowning due to heavy surf in Florida. The following table lists all of the storms that formed in the 2002 Atlantic hurricane season. Summary of the relevant tropical storms in the Atlantic in 2002, The "strength" of a tropical cyclone is measured by the minimum barometric pressure, not wind speed. Most Popular. (Before … Gray's team determined the average number of storms per season between 1950 and 2000 to be 9.6 tropical storms, 5.9 hurricanes, and 2.3 major hurricanes (storms exceeding Category 3). Due to vertical wind shear, the depression was unable to intensify, and remained below tropical storm status during its duration. [1], On April 5 a new forecast was issued, calling for 12 named storms, 7 hurricanes and 3 intense hurricanes. On October 11, Kyle reached land and made its first landfall near McClellanville, South Carolina. The strongest winds were actually from, John L. Beven II, Richard J. Pasch and Miles B. Lawrence. The depression initially tracked west-northwestward, but then curved to the north-northeast. The next day the storm was located just south of Jamaica, and it developed into Tropical Storm Isidore. [16] After peaking in intensity, the storm suddenly lost organization,[20] and the winds decreased to minimal tropical storm force. These 21 names will be assigned to any tropical storms that develop in the Atlantic Ocean in 2019. [5], On August 8, 2002, NOAA revised its season estimate to 7–10 named storms, with 4–6 becoming hurricanes and 1–3 becoming major hurricanes. The strongest storm this year was Hurricane Kenna, which reached Category 5 on the Saffir–Simpson scale. 2001 hurricane names also available. Tropical cyclones include depressions, storms and hurricanes. Its movement was also extremely irregular, as it shifted sharply north and south along its generally westward path. [43][48], A non-tropical low formed into Subtropical Depression Twelve, well east-southeast of Bermuda on September 20. [34], In early September, a tropical wave merged with a trough of low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico and spawned a low pressure system. By July 17, Arthur had become extratropical, and moved north over Newfoundland. While the season's first cyclone did not develop until July 14, activity quickly picked up: eight storms developed in the month of September. After returning to the Gulf of Mexico as a tropical storm, Isidore's final landfall was near Grand Isle, Louisiana on September 26, where the storm weakened to a depression. It drifted northward, then executed a clockwise loop off the coast of Florida. Tropical Storm Dolly, which formed in August also persisted into September. [24], The storm brought heavy rainfall in Mexico and Texas. A normal season, as defined by NOAA, has 9 to 12 named storms, of which 5 to 7 reach hurricane strength and 1 to 3 become major hurricanes. By the 23rd, Lili had moved across the Windward Islands as a tropical storm. Noted hurricane expert William M. Gray and his associates at Colorado State University issue forecasts of hurricane activity each year, separately from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). [32][33], The storm was responsible for one death and $100,000 (2002 USD) in damage, mostly in North Carolina. [1][2], On December 7, 2001, Gray's team issued its first extended-range forecast for the 2002 season, predicting above-average activity (13 named storms, 8 hurricanes, and about 2 of Category 3 or higher). The first hurricane of the 2002 season developed in early September. Charley was the first of four hurricanes to affect Florida in August and September of that year, and … It includes their duration, names, landfall(s) â€“denoted by bold location names â€“ damages, and death totals. It ended early however, with no tropical storms forming after October 6—a rare occurrence caused partly by El Niño conditions. The names used each year for the storms in the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean come from six lists of 21 names, established by the World Meteorological Society, that rotate in a cycle in a system that dates back to the 1950s, though the naming convention has evolved over time. Under a southerly flow, the depression drifted southward, where dry air and wind shear inhibited significant development. [49], Kyle brought light precipitation to Bermuda, but no significant damage was reported there. [18] The storm continued to intensify as more convection developed,[19] and Dolly reached peaked winds of 60 mph (95 km/h) on August 30. The sea-level pressure and trade wind strength in the tropical Atlantic were reported to be above normal, while sea surface temperature anomalies were on a decreasing trend. As the system reached the southwestern Caribbean Sea on October 12, convection increased, and a broad low pressure area formed later that day. To keep things fair, we only included hurricanes since 1979, as all hurricanes were given female names between 1953 and that year. Tropical Storm and Hurricane Names 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, 2024 The system then abruptly turned to the west-northwest, and remained steady in strength and course until landfall the next day, near Matagorda. Ultimately, the storm caused more than $160 billion in damage, and it reduced the population of New Orleans by … Hurricanes began getting names in 1950, when the U.S. It then moved out to sea, strengthening slightly into a tropical storm on July 15. [29] By September 8, there was no remaining thunderstorm activity,[30] and the depression degenerated into a remnant low-pressure area. [15], A tropical wave exited the African coast on August 27,[16] and with low favorable conditions the system organized into Tropical Depression Four on August 29 about 630 mi (1,020 km) southwest of Cape Verde. Lili was the twelfth named storm, fourth hurricane, and second major hurricane of the 2002 Atlantic hurricane season. The three new names were used for Atlantic storms for the first time. More retired Atlantic hurricane names start with "I" than any other letter. However, when it died out, what was left of the storm caused rain and wind on Bermuda. The extratropical low was quickly absorbed by another larger extratropical system on the afternoon of September 19. The storm continued generally northeastward, steered between a subtropical high to the northeast and a frontal system approaching from the west. The season produced fourteen tropical cyclones, of which twelve developed into named storms; four became hurricanes, and two attained major hurricane status. Any country may request that the name of a hurri… A hurricane strikes the east coast of Florida, sinking 10 Spanish treasure ships and killing nearly 1,000 people, on July 31, 1715. The potential for major hurricane activity in the Caribbean was forecast to be above average. This is the current list in use by the National Hurricane Centre. [41] As a tropical storm, Isidore produced a maximum of 15.97 inches (406 mm) of rainfall in the United States at Metairie, Louisiana. Most meteorological organizations rate the intensity of a storm by this figure, so the lower the minimum pressure of the storm, the more intense or "stronger" it is considered to be.
