Title:
Selected hurricanes affecting the southern United States 1954-1977
Description:
Regions and Seasons: By the 1960s, satellites were used to track hurricanes from the air. Issued as part of a government report, this map illustrates thirty-six hurricane tracks in the Gulf of Mexico over a twenty-year period. The different colors represent numbers of tropical cyclones that have impacted areas along the Gulf from 1901 to 1955. Florida’s west coast and the east coast of the Carolinas were heavily impacted by tropical storms, as evidenced by the dark rust color in those locations.
