Historical Hurricane Maps

NOAA has a neat online tool which maps out hurricanes as far back as the nineteenth-century. The more recent storms also have meteorological data broken down by various stages of growth and decline of the storm.

Its interesting to see various parts of the country repeatedly hit only to have people build exactly on the same spot only to have the homes destroyed again (cough barrier islands cough).

So far there has been no Hurricane Catholicgauze but there has been a couple Catholicgauzettes. (Hat tip: The Map Room)
