 READ ME, PLEASE

This Hurricane time line was compiled to assist with genealogical research in the Caribbean. I have included all references to any hurricane, gale, squall and storm mention in my sources. I will update this list as I receive new and additional information.

Please be aware that I have only included information related to the Caribbean and the areas surrounding. Some of the storms affected other areas, but was not included as relevant. This should be kept in mind when looking at "Losses". If I found specific data on losses I have referred to it in "Notes".

NOTE: In the area of "Losses" I have included all the numbers, from the lowest to the highest. *There is some discrepancy in the Spanish reporting, all my sources report that these countries/islands under-reported their losses.

THANK YOU for the numerous emails sent to me from the Caribbean Newsgroups.
