The 2017 Hurricanes Season in the Atlantic was particularly active. Of the 13 named tropical storms that year, eight were hurricanes; and of those, four were major hurricanes. The season has been marked not only by the high frequency of the hurricanes, but also for their increased intensity. Of the five category 3 and greater hurricanes, three made landfall in the Caribbean and two on continental USA causing tragic loss of life and widespread devastation. Hurricanes Irma and Maria, both category 5 when they made landfall, were the most devastating hurricanes for the Caribbean for the 2017 hurricane season.
Irma, the most powerful hurricane recorded over the Atlantic, made landfall as a category 5, hitting Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, British Virgin Islands, Cuba, Saint Martin, Bahamas, Sint Maarten, Saint Barthelemy, and Turks and Caicos Islands most severely.
