I think part of that is whether or not accurate wind speed measurements can be made.
Often they have to rely on estimates.

I can still remember when there were no weather satellites or radar to help forecasters with their predictions.

My first hurricane (although I admit I don't remember it since I was only 2) was Hazel

Quote:
Hurricane Hazel was the deadliest, costliest, and most intense hurricane of the 1954 Atlantic hurricane season. The storm killed at least 469 people in Haiti before striking the United States near the border between North and South Carolina as a Category 4 hurricane.

After causing 95 fatalities in the US, Hazel struck Canada as an extratropical storm, raising the death toll by 81 people, mostly in Toronto. As a result of the high death toll and the damage caused by Hazel, its name was retired from use for North Atlantic hurricanes.
If I never see another one up close it's fine with me.

The only month of the year not to have a hurricane is February. As to damage, that is caused by more people building along the coast. The numbers of storms has always fluctuated so a few years of high numbers is not unusual. The last major hurricane to hit South Carolina was Hugo in 1989. Some have swiped the coast but thunderstorms have caused more damage around here.

So, no chicken little here.

Decades ago, it would be days before the TV (network only back then) would show damage.

There seemed to be a lot more death, too... probably due to less warning time, less organized evacs, older building codes, smaller/fewer/poorer levies, lesser ability/knowledge to predict/map/understand storm surge and flooding, etc., etc., etc.

There may be a new storm soon, named Olga:

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

1. Showers and thunderstorms continue to show signs of organization in
association with a low pressure system located over the Bay of
Campeche. However, recent satellite data indicate that the
circulation is elongated and not well defined. This system
could become a short-lived tropical depression before it merges with
a cold front by late Friday. Regardless of development, gale-force
winds are expected behind the cold front over the western Gulf of
Mexico on Friday and Saturday. For more information, see High Seas
Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...60 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...60 percent.

And how long ago did they start naming storms? Seems I read somewhere that they've only been naming hurricanes for a century or so. Also, a century ago there may've been hurricanes that existed at sea, about which we knew nothing.

Quote:
For several hundred years many hurricanes in the West Indies were named after the particular saint's day on which the hurricane occurred. Ivan R. Tannehill describes in his book "Hurricanes" the major tropical storms of recorded history and mentions many hurricanes named after saints.

For example, there was "Hurricane Santa Ana" which struck Puerto Rico with exceptional violence on July 26, 1825, and "San Felipe" (the first) and "San Felipe" (the second) which hit Puerto Rico on September 13 in both 1876 and 1928.

It might not have been named but there's a good chance some ships or planes would have recorded/reported it.

It's only been in about the last 50 years that we've had the ability to see them with satellites though.
