Re: How does 2015 compare to 1977?

I see almost no similarities between 1977 and 2015.

By this date in 1977, the Atlantic basin was only on its (correction) FIRST! named storm. However, it was a serious Cat 5, Anita (1977), whose name was actually retired in its aftermath.

By comparison, on this date, today, September 3, 2015, the Atlantic basin has seen six named storms, two hurricanes, and one major - a Cat 3 - Danny (2015).
