• Effects of Hurricane Georges in Puerto Rico September, 1998
The effects of Hurricane Georges in Puerto Rico were some of the worst since Hurricane Hugo in 1989. Hurricane Georges was the first hurricane to cross the entire island since the San Ciprian Hurricane in 1932. Georges formed on September 15, 1998 as Tropical Depression Seven off the African coast. It strengthened into a Category 4-hurricane on September 19 as it made landfall in the Lesser Antilles and made landfall on the island on September 22 as a Category 2-hurricane. Georges caused $1.9 billion (1998 USD, $2.25 billion 2006 USD) in damage to the island.
