Learn about 1999 Hurricane Summary
The 1999 Atlantic hurricane season officially began on June 1, 1999, and lasted until November 30, 1999. These dates conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the Atlantic basin.
The 1999 season set a record by having five storms reach Category 4 strength, which was later tied by the 2005 season. Hurricane Floyd was the deadliest United States hurricane since Hurricane Agnes in 1972, killing 57 people and causing billions in damage as it moved northward along the Atlantic coast. Hurricane Lenny killed 17 as it tracked eastward across the Caribbean, the first hurricane known to do so for an extended time period. Lenny, reaching peak winds of 155 mph just 13 days before the end of the season, was the strongest Atlantic hurricane in the month of November.
