1954 – A YEAR WITH TWO HURRICANE ALICES

The first hurricane of the 1954 season was named ALICE in June.

How can there be another ALICE in 1954? Well, that was the year that a hurricane formed in the tropical Atlantic in December 1954. It moved across the Leeward Islands in January into the eastern Caribbean. Being recognized by the Weather Bureau in 1955, it was given the name ALICE, the first storm of 1955. But since it started in 1954, it was added to the 1954 list of storms which already had a storm named ALICE.

ALICE #2 spanned two calendar years. The only other storm to do this was Tropical Storm ZETA in 2005 and 2006!
