News in Review Extreme Storms: 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season

The Atlantic hurricane season of 2017 will ultimately be one for the record books. Not for having the most hurricanes in a season, but as possibly the strongest hurricane month ever recorded. Five major hurricanes formed, with three making their way to shore – two as top-rated Category 5 storms. They came in quick succession and brought devastating winds and unprecedented rain. Some Caribbean islands were completely destroyed while many cities in the U.S. Southeast faced never-before-seen flooding.
