:larrow: Goodness, look at that "fist" shape as it moved in. Classic signature of a storm about to bomb out. As I mentioned in the Florence thread, it wouldn't have needed much more time over water to reach Cat 3 and break the CONUS MH landfall "drought" that began after Wilma and continued until Harvey.

The U.S. caught quite a break given that it basically took the storm the entire trek across the Gulf to rebuild its core to that point after taking the long way across Cuba, if you can call entire neighborhoods being washed away "catching a break." Relative to the surge and wind that would have gone into Galveston and Houston had it come back up to a 4, I guess it is...kinda.

Quite a storm and crazy that it ended up in the western Gulf from where it was out in the Atlantic, climatologically abnormal ridges can do funny things, as the Carolinas are being reminded ten years to the day.

Ten years ago we were supposed to be in Galveston, Texas. We wanted to come back to Texas after spending several years in Connecticut for work. Then 3 weeks before our move, our youngest daughter became extremely ill. Our moving date to Galveston was August 31st but she had an emergency surgery which probably saved our livelihood and more.
We moved to Galveston the following year. The devastation was still all around us, piles of cars on Bolivar, homes stood in disrepair all over the island. Ike came and left his mark.
Ten years later, we are still here - very fortunate to have Harvey basically miss us - ever wary looking at tropicaltidbits for the next storm through the whole season. The people and the beach are both awesome here so its worth the stay. And city strives to update its infrastructure even as voters prevent many measures. I have long been a lurker of meteorology bbs's and now this forum. I appreciate you all very much.

On September 16, 1988, Hurricane Gilbert made landfall at the Mexican city of La Pesca, Tamaulipas, with winds of 125 mph (200 km/hr). It had already brought destruction upon the Yucatán peninsula and the Caribbean islands. Along the way it set a new low-pressure record that would stand for 17 years. ... The hurricane brought a 19-ft (6-m) storm surge to the eastern shore of Jamaica and brought tropical downpours and high winds to the entire island. It left 49 dead, destroyed 100,000 homes, and caused US$700 million in damages (70% of that agricultural losses). ... When Gilbert hit the Yucatán Peninsula, it pushed storm surge 5 km (3 mi) inland, brought over 10″ (250 mm) of rain to the peninsula, and did billions of dollars (1988 US$) in damage. It left the area’s tourism infrastructure in tatters for the rest of year. It also brought torrential rains to northern Central America, leaving scores of people dead, thousands homeless, and crops in ruins. The trip over the Yucatán did reduce Gilbert down to Category-3 level, but the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico allowed it to regain some of its strength before hitting the Mexican state of Tamaulipas. Northern Mexico suffered heavy rains, mudslides, and flash floods. Mexico’s third largest city, Monterrey, was left without power or water for days.

On September 16, 1928, the deadliest hurricane in Florida’s history struck West Palm Beach. As it moved inland it drove the waters of Lake Okeechobee against the mud levees on its shores. When the levees failed, a surge inundated the communities of Okeechobee City, South Bay and Belle Glade, causing thousands of deaths. ... Richard Gray, Meteorologist in Charge in Miami, thought that the storm would recurve and not strike south Florida, but warnings were issued from Miami to Titusville. Disruption of communications made tracking the center of the storm difficult, so it came as a surprise on the evening of Sept. 16th when the eye passed over West Palm Beach. As the hurricane traveled over the lake to the west of the city, its winds shifted from northerly to southerly. This sloshed the waters of the shallow lake first against the southern dikes, then across to the northern ones. The meager dried-mud dikes failed on both sides, causing a flash floods that caught people huddled in their homes unable to escape. ... The death toll in the Lake region were in the thousands. Public health concerns and persistent flood waters out-weighed the need for accounting for all the dead, and the bodies were disposed of in either mass graves or burnt on huge pyres. The Red Cross estimate of 1,836 dead stood for a long while, but recent re-evaluations put the total in excess of 2,500. The majority of the deaths were migrant farm workers, mainly of African-American descent. White victims were buried with ceremony, whereas African-American ones were burned in funeral pyres with the ashes buried in mass graves with no markers. Many reports state that surviving African-Americans were forced to recover dead bodies and to do other recovery work without pay.

Sept 27, 2008 -- From a decade ago, 2008's SuperTyphoon Jangmi at category 5 intensity over the Philippine Sea. One striking thing about this system is the very impressive structure it exhibited. Excellent convective banding in all quadrants.

One of a few typhoons to have recon since the end of the recon era in 1987. She wasn't the most impressive though. Imagine...

Oct 3, 1963 -- Atlantic Hurricane Flora from 55 years ago.

https://noaahrd.wordpress.com/2018/10/0 ... ane-flora/
On the night of October 3, 1963, Hurricane Flora smashed into the southern coast of Haiti. It raked the country with
145 mph (230 km/hr) winds and dumped tremendous downpours on its mountains. It would become one of the deadliest and
wettest Atlantic hurricanes on record.

One of my personal favorites. (As you can see, Zeb is also my avatar)

Here is another impressive satellite image of this howler.
