Strongest hurricanes by energy released

#1 Postby arkestra » Tue Oct 09, 2012 2:54 am

Good morning,
I wonder if there are some data available for largest hurricanes by energy released (not mb, winds, etc.).
Thank you,

I'm assuming by that then, you are referring to ACE. I'm sure someone around here has a link to that.

1. Hurricane San Ciricao, 1899. ACE: 73.6
2. Hurricane Ivan, 2004. ACE: 70.4
3. Hurricane Donna, 1960. ACE: 64.6
4. Hurricane Isabel, 2003. ACE: 63.28
5. Great Charleston Hurricane, 1893. ACE: 65.3
