Supplementary notes

According to NOAA, "the Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) is an index that combines the numbers of systems, how long they existed and how intense they became. It is calculated by squaring the maximum sustained surface wind in the system every six hours that the cyclone is a Named Storm and summing it up for the season."
Additionally, "beginning in 1966, daily satellite imagery became available at the National Hurricane Center, and thus statistics from this time forward are most complete, and therefore records are divided into the pre-Satellite Era (1851-1965) and the Satellite Era (from 1966-present)".
