Danielle became the first hurricane of the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season on Sept. 2, making it the latest date for the first hurricane of the season since 2013 (Humberto on Sept. 11).
We also went 332 days without a hurricane, making it the longest time between hurricanes since 1997 to 1998.
Danielle popped up quickly in the north-central Atlantic, forming into a tropical storm on Sept. 1. It then strengthened into a hurricane the next day, making it the first hurricane of the season, and remained a hurricane until the early morning of Sept. 8.
Fortunately, Danielle stayed over open water during its duration.
It finally weakened on Sept. 8 as it became post-tropical, swirling in the Atlantic before moving east toward Europe.
See how the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season has gone so far.
