- Matthew set a new record as the longest lived Category 4 (or higher) Atlantic hurricane in October — 84 hours.
- By Monday, it had already “generated the most accumulated cyclone energy” of any Atlantic hurricane ever recorded in the eastern Caribbean.
- As a result, the 2016 hurricane season has “already generated the most accumulated cyclone energy in the Atlantic in October since 2005” (the year of Katrina, Rita, and Wilma).
Any questions regarding GW? I thought not.
