Overview
The 1952 Atlantic Hurricane Season was fairly inactive, in comparison to the previous two seasons. 1952 was the third and last season to take names from the WW II phoenetic alphabet, and storms this season were named: Able, Barker, Charlie, Dog, Easy, and Fox. All six of the storms were hurricanes. There was also an unnamed tropical storm that formed in February, the earliest formation ever. Not only was it the earliest formation ever, but it also struck Florida and the Florida Keys, and was deemed the Groundhog Day Storm of 1952. Other mentionable storms were Hurricane Fox that struck Cuba as a Category 4, and Hurricane Able that struck Hilton Head Island as a Category 2 storm.

Look for articles on all six of the individual storms of 1952 sometime in late 2006.
