Atlantic Hurricane Season Ends: Time-Lapse Video

Still of NOAA's 2011 tropical storm video

Wednesday marks the end of 2011’s hurricane season, which saw 19 tropical storms and 7 hurricanes tear across the Atlantic. A hypnotic 4.5-minute video from the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) shows all of this year’s tropical storm activity.

All told, 2011’s Atlantic tropical storms resulted in 120 lives lost and $11 billion in damages. Here in Canada, these storms caused massive flooding in the Maritime provinces and freak rain storms and cold fronts everywhere from Toronto to St. John’s.
