Abstract

The 1974 hurricane season produced 96 “tropical systems,” of which 25 acquired the closed circulation of a depression. The origin of nearly half of these, 52, was over the continent of Africa. African seedlings initiated five of the seven named Atlantic storms, and disturbances of Atlantic origin spawned 12 of the 17 East Pacific named storms.
