Event Ivan (by HanKFranK)
     The strongest hurricane of the 2004 season made landfall at Gulf Shores, AL early AM this day with 120MPH winds and a pressure at 946mb--a category 3 hurricane. Ivan had been a category 5 for three seperate spans of its long track across the Atlantic and Caribbean into the Gulf since September 2, but was slowly weakening as it came ashore. This hurricane is estimated to have caused 13 billion dollars in U.S. damage, which placed it just behind Charley for unadjusted third all time until two 2005 hurricanes displaced it to fifth. Much of Ivan's damage was from a combination of surge and wind in the Pensacola area; large numbers of trees were downed in the western Florida panhandle and in south central Alabama as well. Communities in Baldwin County, AL were also badly affected.
Ivan spawned a record 117 tornadoes as it worked inland, just above the old record held by Hurricane Beulah of 1967. The outbreak in Virginia was by itself greater than the old yearly record for that state. Seven people were killed in Ivan's tornadoes, out of the 26 total in the U.S. 95 died overall in the storm, many of which were in Grenada, which was hit particularly hard by the storm. Jamaica and Grand Cayman were also impacted significantly by Ivan.
Ivan's demise on September 18 was short lived, as the extratropical remnant low tracked southward from the mid-Atlantic, turned west across Florida, and redeveloped in the Gulf on September 22. The weak second edition of Ivan moved inland in Louisiana late on the 23rd and quickly dissipated by the next day.
Event Floyd (by HanKFranK)
     After having been as strong as an upper-limit category 4 hurricane on September 13, 1999 off the east coast, Hurricane Floyd finally came ashore as a category 2 hurricane on September 16 near Wilmington, NC. While the weakened storm seemed like a blessing, it dumped copious rains over eastern North Carolina in areas that had previously been set up by Hurricane Dennis two weeks earlier as it meandered weakly through the region. The rivers feeding into Pamlico and Albemarle Sounds flooded severely, resulting in numerous casualties and extensive property damage. 57 died, and damage totaled near 4.5 billion.
