The 1968 Pacific hurricane season holds the record for having the most active month in the East Pacific since reliable records began. It officially started on May 15, 1968 in the eastern Pacific and lasted until November 30, 1968. These dates conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the northeastern Pacific Ocean. Several notable systems formed during the season. Five named storms-Hyacinth, Iva, Liza, Naomi, and Pauline-had effects in the United States. Two others-Annette and Tropical Depression Two-affected Mexico, and Tropical Storm Simone made a rare landfall on Guatemala. Tropical Storm Virginia, which formed in the West Pacific, set a record for tropical storm formation at high latitudes that would stand for seven years, until Hurricane 12 in 1975.
