Table 1: Comparison of normalized (1990) average US hurricane destruction values for the same West African early season rainfall stratification as in Fig. 4. Column 2 shows the mean West African rainfall anomaly for each seven year period, expressed as standardized deviations.

Table 2: Ordered ranking of 42 years of early season (prior to 1 August) precipitation and concurrent yearly US East Coast and Gulf Coast hurricane destruction in millions of 1990 normalized dollars. Year I has the highest rainfall, year 42 the lowest.
