1886 : America’s Busiest Hurricane Season

In 1886, Cuba and the US got slammed by one hurricane after another.

In the month of June 1886 alone, the US was hit by three category 2 hurricanes. Four more hurricanes hit that summer, including two major hurricanes – one of which wiped the town of Indianola, Texas off the map. CO2 was below 300 PPM at the time.

By contrast, the US has had only three hurricane strikes since Obama took office, none of which were above category 1. Obama’s teleprompter whines endlessly about CO2 driven hurricanes, despite the fact that he has had the fewest hurricanes of any president.

    And who knows what storms roiled the open ocean? With today’s NHC naming mania and satellite obs, they might have gotten through the alphabet once and halfway through again.

    It’s Bush’s fault! Wait a minute…
