Date/Time: Date and time when the circulation center crosses the
U.S. coastline (including barrier islands). Time is estimate to
the nearest hour, except to the nearest 15 minutes in recent years.
Lat/Lon: Location is estimated to the nearest 0.1 degrees latitude
and longitude (about 6 nmi).
Max Winds: Estimated maximum sustained (1 min) surface (10 m) winds
to occur along the U. S. coast.
- TX- Texas
- FL- Florida
- SC-South Carolina
- NC-North Carolina
- NJ-New Jersey
- NY-New York
- RI-Rhode Island
- NH-New Hampshire
$ - Indicates that the tropical storm may not have been reliably
estimated for intensity (maximum sustained windspeed) because of
landfall in a relatively uninhabited region. Errors in intensity
are likely to be underestimates of the true intensity.
# - Indicates that the tropical storm made landfall over Mexico, but
produced tropical storm force winds over Texas. The time and position
given are that of the Mexican landfall. The strongest winds impacted
Mexico. Thus the winds indicated here (for Texas) are lower than in
HURDAT and are lower than they were over Mexico.
* - Indicates that the tropical storm/hurricane center did not make a
U.S. landfall, but did produce tropical storm force winds over land.
Position indicated is point of closest approach. Maximum winds refer,
in this table, to the strongest winds estimated for the United States.
& - Indicates that the tropical storm/hurricane center did make a direct
landfall, but that the strongest winds likely remained offshore.
Thus the winds indicated here are lower than in HURDAT.
