FINAL THOUGHTS: 2005 Atlantic Hurricanes and U.S. Streamflow Data Visualizations SHARE YOUR OBSERVATIONS! Could you recognize when the seven named storms made landfall? How? Could you follow the path of the storm as it moved over time? How? What was the timeline for the effects of some of these storms, from before to well after landfall? Did any patterns emerge? Was the eighth named storm recognizable?(Ophelia, the one that never made landfall but brushed the coast of North Carolina) When did it occur? Rewind the presentation and share, point out your observations.
