Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hurricane Alma was a rare June major hurricane in the 1966 Atlantic hurricane season. It was the earliest continental U.S. hurricane strike within any season since 1825. It brought moderate rains to the Southeast, and wind damage was mainly confined to Florida. In early June, a trough in the westerlies extended from the southeastern United States towards Nicaragua. A surface circulation formed near Cabo Gracias a Dios, also known as Cape Gracias, on June 3, and drifted southwestward over land. The circulation organized into Tropical Depression One early on June 4 over the Honduras/Nicaragua border, where it turned to a north drift, dropping heavy rain across the countries.
