Tropical Storm Fay
Proving that a storm doesn't have to reach hurricane strength to cause destruction, Tropical Storm Fay killed 23 in the Caribbean before making a record four landfalls in Florida, as it crisscrossed the peninsula Aug. 18-20.
Some parts of Florida received 26 inches of rain, and at least 13 people died in the U.S. as the storm continued as a tropical depression across the Southeast.
Tropical Storm Dolly formed in the Western Caribbean on July 20. It would make landfall in the Yucatan peninsula, killing at least 17, before moving into the Gulf of Mexico and growing into a Category 2 hurricane by July 23 before making landfall in Texas.
While the storm quickly dissipated over land, it brought extreme rains, flooding, more than $1 billion in damages and one death.
Tropical Storm Alma
Tropical Storm Alma was the first named storm in the Americas in 2008, and the first ever Pacific hurricane to make landfall in Nicaragua.
It formed May 29 and swept into Central America, causing at least 10 deaths in Honduras and Nicaragua.
Tropical Storm Julio
Tropical Storm Julio formed in the eastern Pacific off the coast of Baja California on Aug. 23 and moved to landfall on the peninsula Aug. 24.
The storm prompted 2,500 evacuations, and at least one death before dissipating over Mexico.
