Hurricane Maria

Tropical Storm Maria, Hurricane Maria or Typhoon Maria may refer to: In the Atlantic Ocean: • Hurricane Maria, a Category 3 hurricane that never approached land in its tropical stage. • Hurricane Maria, a Category 1 hurricane that formed in the eastern Atlantic, made landfall on the island of Newfoundland causing minor damage. • Hurricane Maria, an extremely powerful hurricane that made landfall in the island of Dominica at Category 5 intensity, becoming the first hurricane to do so on record, and later brushed through St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands before making landfall in Puerto Rico as a high-end Category 4 hurricane where devastation and an extreme humanitarian crisis occurred. The name Maria was retired after the 2017 season because of the extensive damage and loss of life caused by the storm and was replaced with Margot for the 2023 season.
