New England

New England in October 2011.

This list includes all tropical systems that have had an impact on New England, otherwise known as the American Northeast. States included are Connecticut, Maine, Massachusettes, New Hampshire, New York, and Rhode Island, Vermont. Due to the increasing wind shear and cool sea surface temperatures (SST), tropical cyclones rarely ever affect this area at a strong intensity. However, the large population density causes tough evacuations if a hurricane were to affect the area. In total 42 tropical systems directly impacted the area, including those in extratropical state.

List of tropical cyclonesEdit

2005-PresentEdit

Tropical Storm Cindy (2005) - As an extratropical storm, Cindy brought mostly an inch of rain to most of New England, with heavier rains locally.

Hurricane Ophelia (2005) - As Ophelia passed very close to Cape Cod, a few power outages were reported. Most of the damage reported from Ophelia's passage near New England occured in Cape Cod, where over 5" of rain was reported locally.

Hurricane Noel (2007) - Hurricane force winds reached the shore, causing beachfront damage and erosion, mainly the Cape Cod region.

Tropical Storm Irene (2011) - A weakened Irene made landfall near New York City and continued up into Maine. 13" of rain dropped in parts of New York state. Irene dissipated in Maine.
