Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hurricane Darby was the first Eastern Pacific major hurricane since Hurricane Kenna in 2002. The sixth tropical cyclone, fourth named storm, and second hurricane of the 2004 Pacific hurricane season, Darby developed from a tropical wave that emerged from the west coast of Africa on July 12. After crossing into the Eastern Pacific, the storm became a tropical depression on June 26. Darby peaked as a Category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale, though it quickly deteriorated due to cooler waters and increasing wind shear. The remnants of Darby affected the Hawaiian Islands with heavy rainfall that led to extensive flash flooding. Numerous roads were closed, while landslides and rockslides were reported. Despite the effects, no fatalities or severe damages occurred.show more
