The 1925 Atlantic hurricane season
ran through the summer and the first half of fall in 1925. The was very inactive, with only two known storms forming. However, an early preview
of the re-analysis of the hurricane database indicates two extra storms. Due to lack of satellite imagery, it is possible other short-lived storms existed.
Tropical Storm One
The first storm of the season formed was a Tropical Storm that hit near Brownsville, Texas
. It formed on September 6, the latest start on record.
The second storm formed the on November 29. It formed off the coast of Honduras
and moved northward. It hit near Venice, Florida
on December 1 as a weak hurricane or strong tropical storm. It moved over Florida
, strengthened over the Gulf Stream
, grazed the Outer Banks on December 2, and moved out to sea and dissipated. 55 people reported missing from ship sinkings were likely killed, and $1 million in damage is estimated for this storm. This storm not only carries the record for latest landfall, it also carries the record for latest date a hurricane had reached Category 2
strength. However, an early preview
of the re-analysis of the hurricane database indicates the storm failed to even reach hurricane strength, leaving Hurricane Kate
of 1985 as the latest United States landfall.
