Hurricane Dennis in 2005

News
Hurricane Dennis Track 2005

Hurricane Dennis was compact but still powerful on July 10th, 2005. Mobile and southern Baldwin counties were ordered to evacuate.

Dennis made landfall near Navarre Beach as a category three storm. Winds were near 120 mph but the eye was only about 10 miles across. Coastal damage blended with damage from Hurricane Ivan in the previous year. Dennis carried enough punch inland to Alabama to almost repeat in Atmore the damage seen from Hurricane Ivan in 2004.

Here are some stats from the Mobile office of the National Weather Service. For more, check this link.

Dennis’ landfall was 2:25 pm Sunday, July 10, 2005 near Navarre Beach Florida as a Category 3 Hurricane.
