"Emily formed so quickly and unexpectedly that the Hurricane Hunters never flew into the storm. It is very unusual for a named storm to make landfall in the U.S. without the Hurricane Hunters ever sampling the storm."

"Emily's formation date of July 31 comes a full month before the average August 31 date of the season's fifth named storm."



"Earth's first Category 5 storm of the year developed in spectacular fashion on Sunday. Super Typhoon Noru strengthened incredibly quickly over the weekend after having drifted southward over the Northwest Pacific-an unusual track for a rapid intensifier, as pointed out by Eric Blake (NHC)."

Noru has weakened now.
