Abstract

The first significant filling of Hurricane Allen coincided with its encroachment on Haiti, Jamaica and eastern Cuba. It is suggested that the filling was due to the interruption offered to its circulation by the mountainous terrain. The accompanying secondary wind maximum may have contributed to, or have been coincidental with, the weakening observed.
