2018-2019 Atlantic hurricane season

This season was one of the most active seasons on record, only 10 storms behind 2012. The names of the storms are supposed to be from the 2012 season, but was pushed back to 2020. The first storm was Hurricane Alicia, which formed on May 17 and intensified into a Category 4 hurricane. The next storm, Tropical Storm Ben, made landfall on Haiti and caused light rainfall. Tropical Storm Cindy nearly became a hurricane and attacked Alabama. Hurricane Danny became a Category 3 hurricane and made landfall near Nova Scotia.
