Portal:Tropical Storm Erick (2007)

Tropical Storm Erick was the eighth tropical cyclone and fifth tropical storm of the 2007 Pacific hurricane season. Erick originated from a tropical wave that moved off the coast of Africa, traveled westward across the Atlantic Ocean, and emerged into the Eastern Pacific Ocean without any further development. The wave spawned a small low-pressure system on July 28, which matured into a tropical depression later that day despite strong wind shear in the region. The depression intensified into a tropical storm, and received the name "Erick" while continuing its westward track. However, the shear prevented the storm from intensifying further, and broke up the storm's structure within a few days. The cyclone weakened to a tropical depression and degenerated into a remnant low shortly after. Because the storm remained far out at sea, no damage was reported in association with Erick.
