3.11.06 - Today we completed articles for Felix, Gabrielle, Humeberto, Iris, and Jerry as we continue to make up for lost time. You will notice that we have a brand new fact of the week, and a new feature: Picture of the day. This feature was created to encourage people to come back and visit us daily to see the new picture. Thanks for visting! (2603)

3.9.06 - The construction on the 1995 Season began yesterday, with the completion of Allison and Barry. Today, we completed Chantal, Dean, and Erin. (2405)

3.7.06 - Apologies for the large delay in updates; we have been in the process of getting new computers. With that said, we have still been working all along, and the 1996 Season is now complete. The construction on the long 1995 Season will begin tomorrow; a few days late; but we will make this time up. The 1995 Season will still be on track for a completion date of March 15. In the long run, we are still on our way to having all season post 1980 completed by the start of the 2006 Atlantic Hurricane Season. (2331)

3.1.06 - On this, the first of March, we have completed articles for Cesar, Dolly, Edouard and Fran of 1996. We have decided to include images for the 1996 season and the 1995 season due to popular demand. However, as we said before, seasons previous to 1994 will only have track images, and those will not come for some time. (2072)

2.26.06 - Construction continues on the 1996 season, with the completion of Bertha. (1953)

2.25.06 - The 1996 Season construction has began today, with a completion for Arthur. You will also notice that there is a new fact of the week today, make sure you check it out! (1920)

2.22.06 - Construction continues on the 1997 season. Meanwhile, you will notice that there are now pages prepared with links and titles for the storms of 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, and 1995. You will also notice that they do not contain images, which will be the norm for all articles pre 1996. There are many reasons for this; the number one reason being that the images for pre 1996 storms are very low quality, and scarce to find due to the technology available at that time. Also, there are space and storage issues that need to be addressed. On the bright side, note that we will still include an image for the storm if it was a major storm. Yes, the pages will be much less colorful, but not for long, because every page (including post 1996) will eventually contain a storm track image which shows the path of the storm. (Look at Arlene of 2005's page for an example.) Happy Washington's Birthday! (1756)

2.21.06 - Construction on the short 1997 hurricane season began today. Articles were completed for Ana and Bill. This season should be completed by February 24, and the 1996 Season construction will begin on February 25, and should be finished by March 5.

Also, another update - we now plan to have all seasons from 1980-2005 completed BEFORE the start of the 2006 season, instead of the 1985-2005 which was originally expected. We hope to have all atlantic archives completed before November 30, 2006 which is not only the official end of the 2006 Atlantic and E.

We are hoping to have all articles for storms of 1985-2005 completed BEFORE the start of the 2006 Season, because we will be very busy during that period, and have less time to complete articles for storms long ago.

For those who are waiting patiently for the East Pacific construction to begin, you can expect some progress starting on February 13. We would also like to let you know about what we plan on doing as far as how far back the archives will go. Our goal is to provide information on Atlantic Basin storms all the way back to 1950, when they were first named. As for the pacific season, we would like to go as far back as the amount of information allows, which should get us back to at least 1990. As for pictures, we will provide pictures for ALL atlantic storms from 1997 to present, but there will only be pictures for significant storms previous to 1997. This is because ample images are not available that far back.

The 2002 season construction will begin on Tuesday, January 10. The 2003 Season will be completed on Monday, January 9.
