List of New England Hurricanes - List of Tropical Cyclones - 19th Century

19th Century

  • September 12, 1804 – The Antigua-Charleston Storm, a major hurricane for the Caribbean, Georgia, and South Carolina, impacted portions of New England as weakening tropical storm and then tropical depression before dissipating off the coast of Nova Scotia.
  • October 9, 1804- The Storm of October 1804 crossed New England, cool air was entrained in the circulation, and it became extratropical. The storm brought heavy snow across the Northeast, in some areas up to 2–3 feet, and killed 9 people. This was the second observation of snow from a landfalling hurricane, but not the last. This Category three hurricane was a major one, especially for eastern Massachusetts.
  • October 3, 1805 – A hurricane that struck Mantanzas, Cuba reportedly reached the Maine territory (claimed by Massachusetts until 1820) as a tropical cyclone. Little information is available on this storm but a tropical cyclone exclusively striking Maine is not unique. This is what occurred during the passage of Hurricane Gerda in 1969.
  • September 1815 – What was once a major hurricane in the Carolinas brought Tropical Storm-force winds to portions of New England. The likely track of this cyclone takes it very near but offshore of Nantucket.
  • September 23–24, 1815 – The Great September Gale of 1815 struck New England as a major hurricane and delivered an 11-foot storm surge that funneled up Narragansett Bay where it destroyed some 500 houses and 35 ships and flooded Providence, Rhode Island. It also caused 38+ deaths all over New England.
  • August 12, 1817- A hurricane that was first reported near Tobago made landfall on the Florida panhandle and moved slowly up the coast. This cyclone, now a weak tropical storm or tropical depression, brought rain to New York and portions of New England on the 12th before moving into Quebec.
  • September 4, 1821- The 1821 Norfolk and Long Island Hurricane was a very powerful tropical cyclone that made landfall within the modern day limits of New York City. It sliced through New England and was likely extratropical as it moved along the Maine coastline.
  • June 4–5, 1825- An early-season hurricane known sometimes dubbed the "Early June Hurricane" formed in late May near Santo Domingo and later struck Cuba, Florida, and South Carolina before moving up the Mid-Atlantic and into New England. Hurricane conditions were reported as far north as New York City and the cyclone's status as a tropical cyclone in New England is debatable given the early date.
  • August 27, 1827- The St. Kitts Hurricane impacted the eastern seaboard from Wilmington, North Carolina to Portsmouth, New Hampshire. It is possible that this cyclone made landfall along the United States but there are also conflicting reports that say it remained offshore of Cape Hatteras, Delaware, and Nantucket. August 1827 was a very active month with at least four hurricanes impacting the North Atlantic.
  • August 1830 – Two hurricanes passed close to southeastern Massachusetts within a week of each other. First came the Atlantic Coast Hurricane on August 19 followed by a second hurricane around the 25th. Damage from these two blows was duly noted on Nantucket. It appears that the later system approached the region from the southeast before turning out to sea southeast of Cape Cod.
  • October 11, 1830 – A third hurricane impacted New England in 1830 but like the two in August, this cyclone did not make landfall in New England. Barnestable, Massachusetts reported the storm.
  • July 19, 1835 – The remnants of a hurricane that struck Florida twice moved into northern New England from New York.
  • August 30, 1839 - A hurricane moved up the east coast but did not make landfall. Fringe effects were felt on Long Island and southeastern New England.
  • October 3, 1841 - The October Gale of 1841 became an extratropical storm, and passed off the coast of New England. It led to a storm of snow and sleet in Connecticut, bringing up to 18 inches of snow in some areas. The storm wrecked the Georges Bank fishing fleet which drowned 81 fishermen and knocked down trees, tore roofs off houses and forced boats to go up on shore. The storm also destroyed a saltworks factory along Cape Cod, sending the economy to a slump. In 1842, a monument was erected to remember the sailors and fishermen lost at sea.
  • October 14, 1846 - The Great Havana Hurricane of 1846 was still a strong tropical cyclone when it passed into New England from New York. In Hartford, Connecticut hurricane-force winds destroyed a trestle bridge. Numerous apple orchards in Massachusetts were reported ruined. No deaths due to the hurricane's passage over New England were reported.
  • October 6, 1849 - A tropical cyclone made landfall in Massachusetts, causing 143 deaths. This was the first known tropical cyclone to make landfall in New England since June 1825.
  • 1850 - Three tropical cyclones impacted New England this season. The remnants of a July hurricane in the Carolinas passed into New England. An August hurricane caused damage in its wake through New England but was probably a tropical storm. Finally, a September hurricane passed off the coast causing some damage.
  • October 19, 1851 - A tropical storm formed north of the Bahamas on October 16. It continued northward and reached a peak intensity of 70 mph (113 km/h). But it weakened to a 60 mph (97 km/h)-storm before it made landfall in Rhode Island on the 19th. Later that day it dissipated on the border between Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
  • September 16, 1858- A category 1 hurricane made landfall on the Connecticut-Rhode Island border and brought heavy rain to New England before exiting Maine as a tropical storm. It then continued northeast until it dissipated just over the other side of the Gulf of St. Lawrence on the 17th.
  • September 28, 1861- Hurricane 5 hit Connecticut as a 60 mph (97 km/h) tropical storm. It then continued east-northeast and dissipated in extreme eastern Maine later that day.
  • November 3, 1861- The Expedition Hurricane struck eastern Connecticut as a 60 mph (97 km/h) tropical storm. It then continued northeast until it dissipated over southern Maine later that day.
  • September 19, 1863- An Unnamed tropical storm makes landfall in New York and brings strong winds to western New England.
  • October 30, 1866- The former category one Hurricane Seven makes landfall in New Jersey, Long Island, and New York City and begins to parallel the New York-New England border until it briefly enters Vermont and dissipates.
  • October 10, 1894- Hurricane Five struck Connecticut as a category 1 hurricane.
  • September 10, 1896- Hurricane Two struck Massachusetts as a category 1 hurricane.
  • September 24, 1897- Tropical Storm Three hit Connecticut as a 50 mph (80 km/h) tropical storm. It continued up through all the New England states except for Vermont.
  • October 6, 1898- Hurricane Seven came from the west and hit Maine as a tropical depression, then continued east into Atlantic Canada.
  • November 1, 1899- Hurricane Eight struck New England as a 50 mph (80 km/h)+ extratropical storm.
