[Prior to the satellite era, our records of hurricanes and other tropical cyclones is incomplete. Imagine if this trio of hurricanes that lined up in the Atlantic on September 16, 2010, had occurred a hundred years ago. How much would we know today about Karl 's landfall in Mexico (left), Igor's path across the ...

Jose, following a similar path to Irma in the eastern Atlantic, has grown into an extremely dangerous Category 4 hurricane with 150 mph winds. On Saturday, it could strike or at least brush some of the same islands in the northern Lesser Antilles decimated by Irma on Tuesday night and Wednesday.
HURRICANE Irma, Jose and Katia have an eerily identical path to another trio of hurricanes that formed back in 2010, a remarkable map shows. By Sean Martin .... Seven years ago to the month, hurricanes Igor, Julia, and Karl formed over the Atlantic ocean which alerted scientists. Now, in September 2017 ...
Hurricane Irma — a Category 5 storm — poses the most imminent threat as it bears down on the Caribbean, with maximum sustained winds of 185 mph, before it is expected to take a turn to the north and threaten the U.S., according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC).
The Atlantic experienced three simultaneous hurricanes in 2010, with Igor, Julia, and Karl all swirling in the basin at the same time. Julia never threatened land, so the NHC didn't issue a warning for North America. This is the first time that three hurricanes have the potential to make landfall at the same time.
So it's been seven years since it last happened, when hurricanes Igor, Julia, and Karl appeared simultaneously in the Atlantic in 2010. Four simultaneous Atlantic hurricanes have been recorded just twice in history, once in 1893 (before hurricanes were given names) and again in 1998 (Georges, Ivan, ...
In 2017, Hurricane Jose has the potential to affect some areas that were hit hard by Irma. In 2010, Julia proved to be mostly harmless, staying out to sea, and was weakened in part by Hurricane Igor ahead of it, as well as dust from the Saharan Desert. Karl and Katia had their own similarities as the weakest ...
The last time three hurricanes were active at once was 2010, when hurricanes Igor, Julia and Karl were classified as hurricanes, according to records from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The record for the most hurricanes active at once is four — that was set in 1998 when ...

Igor was the largest recorded Atlantic storm. It threatened the Canadian coast near Newfoundland, but its largest point was when it was still over the ocean. Sandy (2012): 482 miles. Sandy, most commonly classified as a superstorm, was the second-largest hurricane on record by this definition. It caused ...
