Hurricanes and Tropical Storms in our Recent Past

Royal Street in Mobile flooded from Hurricane Katrina surge.

These tropical systems have impacted the News 5 area in the last generation. Some made a direct hit with tremendous consequences, while others passed to our south or arrived as downgraded systems. Many had effects only felt in a portion of our area whether it was surge, tornadoes, flooding, or high wind. Most of the dates listed are for landfall while other dates may be for when an inland storm moved into our area from the west or east. The hurricanes listed in bold, are plotted on the map.
