Puerta Plata I., Dominican Republic (MDPP)

Location: 19.75N 70.55W

Tropical systems passing within 60nm (= 69mi.) of the island. Used latitude/longitude coordinates (19.75N,70.55W) might not be the center of the island. Often the location of the island weather station was used, which is normally at the airport.
Please note that not only hurricanes (h1-h5) are included but also tropical storms (ts). Wind/category reported is maximum measured while the system moved through region (box). Each category storm has its own color (see color bar below; ts=tropical storm; h1=category 1 hurricane; etc., see the guide for definitions). Different projections can be selected, the island projections are most zoomed in (select if you want to see how close the systems passed by the island [not available for regions]), while the world projection most zoomed out (select when you want to see the complete path of the storm). Winds are in miles per hour. It is also calculated how close the center of the storm came to the island, the so-called closest point of approach (cpoa, in miles).

Below you can see all stormtracks for each decade since 1851 for Puerta Plata. Note that the most recent 'decade' (2010) only consists of 1 year. All storms since 1851 in one image [colored spaghetti] can be found elsewhere. In the climatology section there is also a weekly analysis of the data which shows when the real peak of hurricane season is for Puerta Plata and a five-year analysis to find out if more storms have passed close by Puerta Plata recently.
