The 2019 Atlantic Hurricane season was a generally busy season containing 18 named storms, 9 hurricanes of which 5 became major. Storms of most note were Hurricane Chantal which caused major flooding in Texas as a high end tropical storm, Hurricane Gabrielle which caused severe damage in the US Virgin Islands and North Carolina as a powerful major hurricane killing a total of 69 people, Hurricane Jerry which devastated much of the Windward Islands and Jamaica killing at least 700 people as well as causing some less but still heavy damage in Cuba and Florida afterwards, Hurricane Melana which struck Cuba as a category four causing extreme damage and 23 fatalities then Western Florida as a category two causing much less but still significant damage and at least 5 more deaths and Tropical Storm Pablo which directly struck South America killing 80 people from flooding and mudslides.

Tropical Storm Andrea

Andrea formed from a disturbed area of heavy thunderstorms and showers off the coast of Belize, tracked Northeastward over the Gulf and struck near Marco Island, Florida as a 70 MPH tropical storm, on the verge of becoming a hurricane but moved very slowly and dissipated over Miami, Florida. Over 8 inches of rainfall has been reported in Chokoloskee, Florida and a peak wind gust of 97 MPH in Marco Island, Florida. There has been 2 confirmed direct deaths, both in Naples Beach and one possible indirect death when a 12 year old boy goes missing near a Fort Myers beach.

Hurricane Benny

Benny was a fish storm which tracked West of the Cape Verde Islands and raced toward Bermuda with maximum intensity as a category 2 hurricane costing the lives of two Bermudan fishermen.

Hurricane Chantal

Chantal was a category 1 hurricane at maximum which struck near Corpus Christi, Texas as a strong tropical storm killing 6 in Texas and 2 from the soaking remmants over the Midwest (Iowa, Ohio).

Subtropical Storm Darien

Subtropical Storm Darien formed near the Azores Islands and raced Westward for a couple of days containing maximum winds of 70 miles per hour baring hurricane strength but not after becoming extratropical.

Tropical Storm Erin

Tropical Storm Erin formed from a large area of showers and thunderstorms off the coast of Florida. The systems drifted northward parralel to the Florida East Coast and peaked as a 60 MPH system about 65 miles ENE of Daytona Beach. Impacts on land were limited to some increased surf along the Atlantic Coast Of Florida and The Bahamas. No damage was reported. Erin then raced sharply out to sea and lost tropical characteristics.

Hurricane Fonzie

Fonzie formed from a tropical wave off Africa. The system gradually strengthened into a hurricane and then a major hurricane to the East of the Northern Lesser Antilles thanks to abnormally warm SSTs. A ridge of high pressure lifted it sharply out to sea but not before bringing tropical-storm force winds and minimal damage in the US Virgin Islands from its outer rain bands at peak as a 125 MPH hurricane. One woman from Chicago vacationing in Barbados drowned when she swam and rough surf knocked her underwater. The system passed about 100 miles East of Bermuda as category one, slightly increasing surf. The extratropical remnants caused powerful wind gusts up to hurricane-force and decent damage in the Azores Islands.

Hurricane Gabrielle

Gabrielle formed from a tropical wave off Africa. The system steadily strengthened into a hurricane and then a major hurricane prior to reaching the US Virgin Islands. Hurricane warnings were issued and Gabrielle's center passed within' 20 miles of Barbados packing winds of 145 MPH leaving behind extreme damage of up to $2.2 billion USD and 22 fatalities. Storm surge of up to 20 feet caused major water damage to homes drowning 18 of the 22 reported deaths, Severe roof damage to houses killed the other 4 people. It hit a period of slightly higher shear which weakened it into a category three before rapid re-intensification into a category five with 165 MPH winds at peak as it bypassed The Bahamas to the east causing swells of up to 10 feet along the Florida East Coast and evacuations of coastal low-lying neighborhoods. The large wind radius produced winds of up to tropical-storm force leaving behind minimal damage and isolated power outages in Eastern Florida. 3 people were killed from the surf. Gabrielle began to weaken into a category four then into a category three just as it moved ashore near Wilmington NC leaving behind $3.5 million USD and 39 casualities. A storm surge of up to 20 feet caused heavy water damage to houses. As Gabrielle weakened as it moved inland, flash flooding and high winds were reported as far inland as Michigan along with 5 extra traffic casualities. Due to the high death toll of 69 and massive damage totals, Gabrielle was later retired.

Hurricane Humberto

Humberto formed from a tropical wave off Africa. The system slowly intensified as it moved into the Central Atlantic and reached hurricane strength as it began to turn North and safely out to sea. Humberto peaked as a 80 MPH category one (986 mb). The extatropical remnants dumped up to 3 inches of rainfall and gusty winds in Spain later on causing very little to no reported damage but other than that did not affect any land masses.

Tropical Storm Iggo

Iggo formed from a tropical disturbance in the Bay Of Campache. The system gradually strengthened in the 18 hours after formation over water and made landfall near Tampico MX as a 50 MPH system, causing light damage and no casualities. Isolated power outages were reported as well as downed tree limbs and minor to moderate flooding.

Hurricane Jerry

Jerry formed from a tropical wave off Africa. The system steadily strengthened as it moved across the Atlantic into a hurricane, major hurricane and then a category five hurricane prior to reaching Windward Islands. In the Windward Islands where it stormed through as a monster category five, severe destruction and 46 fatalities were reported. Cars were tossed over, homes were underwater and it took residents years to fully recover from the tragic aftermath of Jerry which was considered the worst hurricane to impact the region in at least 100 years or so. Further intensification brought Jerry to up to an incredible 185 MPH intensity about 150 miles South of Haiti where hurricane-force gusts, minor damage and 2 deaths were reported. Jerry was the most intense hurricane ever recorded packing a minimum pressure of 876 milibars at peak. Jerry began to gradually weaken as it hit slightly higher shear and then struck Jamaica as a 170 MPH hurricane leaving behind just extreme catastrophic devastation of up to $96 billion USD. Much of the area was totally decimated and at least 589 people lost their lives in the island. Some areas were under up to 25 feet of water sinking some homes. Downed trees were all over the place and the power outages would be out for a few years in some locations. Weakening made Jerry a category four during landfall in Central Cuba causing less but still severe damage and 52 fatalities. Some further weakening into a category two occured as Jerry bended to the northwest and made landfall near Jupiter Island FL as low end category three causing significant damage of up to $96 million USD and 14 deaths, although the area suffered way less damage than Windward Islands, Jamaica and Cuba. Jerry shot back northeast and lost tropical characteristics. Due to the severe destruction and horrible loss of life, the name Jerry was retired. A total of 714 people were killed.

Hurricane Karen

Karen formed from a tropical disturbance near Bermuda. The system brought light damage to the island as it slid by packing winds of 50 MPH then underwent a stage of significant intensification and became a minimal category one hurricane for 12 hours before hitting cooler waters and weakening,

Tropical Storm Lorenzo

Lorenzo formed from a tropical disturbance near the SE Bahamas. The system gradually intensified as it parraleled The Bahamas peaking as a 65 MPH system before racing out to sea. The system dumped a decent amount of rainfall over The Bahamas but caused little to no damage.

Hurricane Melana

Hurricane Melana formed from a tropical disturbance in the Central Caribbean. It steadily strengthened into a tropical storm then rapidly strengthened into a category 4 hurricane before coming ashore Cuba packing winds of 135 MPH (943 mb). Extreme damage of up to $1.1 billion USD along with 23 casualities were reported in Cuba. Damage impacts included nearly catastrophic storm surge flooding of up to 10 feet deep in some places causing severe water damage to many homes, severe roof damage to destroyed houses, trees down blocking roadways and power outages that would last for months in a few locations. Because of all this damage, Floridian residents grew concerned plus forecast tracks and models at one point took it into the area as a category five sparking a fear that led to mandatory evacuations for all of the Miami Metro area, with hurricane warnings issued for the area. However due to abrupt high shear near Cuba, it rapidly weakened into a category two keeping that intensity with patterns shifting Melana more to the west mainly sparing the Miami area taking it into the Naples area packing winds of 105 MPH (967 mb), causing moderate to heavy damage of up to $500 million USD and about 6 casualities in the state. Significant surge flooding caused major damage to scattered lower elevated homes along the southwestern coastline with water levels of upwards of 6 feet in isolated areas near the immediate coastline. Winds toppled trees and caused power outages that would last for several days but no more than that. However the overall damage effects were a lot less than initially expected. Its remnants went on to cause isolated flash flooding and locally heavy downpours over parts of the Northeast US but no major damage or additional deaths. Because of the overall damage and death toll mainly in Cuba, Melana was later retired by the WMO in the spring of 2020.
