Hurricane season ends with just one tropical storm in Texas

🕐 1 min read

HOUSTON (AP) — The Atlantic Hurricane Season ended on a quiet note for Texas with just one tropical storm reaching the state in the past six months.

Monday marked the end of the June-through-November hurricane season.

Experts say this year’s season ends with 11 named storms, four hurricanes and two major hurricanes.

Tropical Storm Bill was the only such storm to strike Texas. Bill made landfall June 16 at Matagorda Island and dumped heavy rain in East Texas, leading to flooding.

Harris County officials on Monday said the area’s emergency operations center was activated six times this year for weather-related reasons.

The Houston area, mainly over Memorial Day weekend, received up to 15 inches of rain. Thousands of homes flooded and three people died. Late-October floods and tornadoes left two people dead.
