Interesting Weather Facts
TROPICAL CYCLONE FACT
Craig's Key, Florida recorded the most intense tropical cyclone ever recorded on land at 892 mb (26.35 inHg) on 02 September 1935 in the eye of the Labor Day Hurricane (Catagory 5). After forming as a weak tropical storm east of the Bahamas on August 29, it slowly proceeded westward and became a hurricane on September 1. It underwent rapid intensification while crossing the Florida Straits and struck the Upper Keys on Labor Day, Monday, September 2. The storm continued northwest along the Florida west coast, weakening before its second landfall near Cedar Key, Florida on September 4. This compact, yet intense hurricane caused extreme damage in the upper Florida Keys, as a storm surge of approximately 18 to 20 feet (5.5-6.1 meters) swept over the low-lying islands. NOTE: While other landfalling tropical cyclones have almost certainly had lower pressures, data is spotty from areas other than the Atlantic basin, especially before the invention of weather satellites.
