The 2013 Pacific hurricane season was a extremely active, destructive, and deadly Eastern Pacific tropical cyclone season. Three notable storms occured this year, Hurricanes Erick, Juliette, and Kiko. Erick killed 800 people and caused $500 million (2013 Wikipedia:United States Dollar:USD) due to major landslides across Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and many other Central American nations. Juliette caused an unprecedented rainfall catastrophe acorss many of Hawaii’s islands, as well as producing tornadoes of EF-3 intensity on Hawaii’s Big Island. Combined with storm surges of 10 feet, the hurricane caused $1.4 billion (2013 USD) in damage and 1,300 fatalities across Hawaii. Kiko also produced deadly landslides across Guatemala, southeastern Mexico, and Hawaii, killing 1,100 people and causing total damages of $1.1 billion (2013 USD). Elsewhere, Hurricanes Cosme, Priscilla, and Tico, as well as Tropical Storms Dalila and Flossie, had minor land impacts, but they were not as severe as Erick, Juliette, or Kiko’s.
