The 2019 Sandlantic hurricane season was a very active season featuring 19 named storms, 11 hurricanes, and 5 major hurricanes. It was an annual event in the annual cycle of tropical cyclone formation, in which tropical cyclones form in the Sandlantic Ocean. It is the first Sandlantic hurricane season on record, with the SHMC taking control of the basin. This season runs from May 1 to December 1. The first storm, Alyssa, formed on May 10, while the last storm, 21S, dissipated on November 11.

Tropical Storm Alyssa

Alyssa sandantic 2019 Alyssa track 2019 sandantic
DurationMay 10 – May 14
Peak intensity50 mph (85 km/h) (1-min)  996 mbar (hPa)

A tropical low formed in the open Sandantic on May 1, heading towards the Isle of Etri. It rapidly organized and developed into a tropical depression on May 10. It strengthened into a tropical storm on May 11, earning the name Alyssa. Then, it reached its peak intensity the next day, with winds up to 50 mph (85 km/h) and a minimum pressure of 996 mbar. At the same time, it made landfall in the Isle of Etri, 50 mi (80 km) west of the city of Thamenew. It then weakened back into a tropical depression on May 13 due to cooler waters. On the next day, Alyssa transitioned into a extratropical cyclone.

2 deaths from the Isle of Etri have been reported after the storm had struck. The total damage in the country is reported to be about $850 thousand (USD).

A tropical wave was first noted over De Caloupe Republic in early-July, moving rapidly toward the ocean. The SHMC then gave it a low chance of forming for the next few days. It gradually organized, it’s well-organized convection appearing on the storm. The SHMC gave it a high chance of forming on July 11. An Air Force Reconnaissance Flight reported gale-force winds more than halfway around the center of the system and it had defined a center of circulation, therefore the system was designated as 04S. The tropical depression eventually intensified into a TS on July 12, earning the name Darcey. Two days later, it intensified into a hurricane, the second one of the season. The hurricane soon slowed down intensification, due to some dry air interacting with the storm. That didn’t stop it from intensifying into a major hurricane on July 17, the first one of the season. Darcey continued to slow down its intensification even more, taking about 66 hours for it to become a Category 4 hurricane on July 20. It reached its peak intensity early the next day, with maximum sustained winds of 140 mph (220 km/h) and a minimum central pressure of 953 mbar. Darcey then encountered an eyewall replacement cycle, weakening back to a Category 3 hurricane on July 22. Unfortunately for the storm, it never restrengthened after its peak due to increasing wind shear, and weakened below major hurricane status on July 23. While approaching the country of Shallmaar, it weakened to a tropical storm on July 25 before making landfall a few hours later. It slowly abated inland, weakening to a tropical depression early on July 26 before degenerating to a remnant low later that day.

Darcey inflicted about $295 million (USD) and caused 7 deaths from Shallmaar alone.

A tropical wave formed over De Calope Republic on August 26, emerging off from land early the next day. The wave was first monitored by the Sandy Hurricane and Monsoon Center on August 28, when the wave was given a 20 percent chance of formation for the next 5 days at that time. The disturbance steadily organized and thunderstorm activity increased over very warm waters and low wind shear. On September 3 at 7:00 pm MST, the well-organized storm developed as Tropical Depression 11S, situated hundreds of miles southeast of Neaout. The storm continued its organization as it progressed west, and it intensified into a tropical storm a day later, at which time it was assigned the name Jackie by the SHMC.

Storm names

The following list of names were given to tropical cyclones during 2019 in the North Sandlantic Ocean. Those names are submitted by the Sandy Hurricane and Monsoon Center and it goes in girl-girl-boy order. If the list is exhausted, then the Greeks will be used.

  • Alyssa
  • Bridget
  • Caspar
  • Darcey
  • Elise
  • Francis
  • Gina
  • Oliver
  • Perla
  • Ruth
  • Seamus
  • Tess

Retirement

On January 1, 2020, the SHMC retired the names Jackie and Lance ahead of time, due to the destruction both of the hurricane had caused. 14 days later, no additional retirements were announced, and both the names were replaced by Jessica and Logan respectively for the 2023 season.

Some people in the Sandlantic basin began to protest that the name Molly should be removed from the naming because the name is a nickname for an illicit drug, MDMA. On February 11, 2020, the SHMC finally decided to rename it to Mollie for the 2021 season.
