During the 2004 hurricane season, five tropical storm systems: Tropical Storm Bonnie, and Hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan, and Jeanne caused significant amounts of rainfall, storm surge, flooding, and hurricane or tropical storm-force winds in northwest Florida. The 2004 hurricane season was one of the most devastating in recorded history for the State of Florida, resulting in billions of dollars in damage and Federal aid. This report focuses on northwest Florida and provides an overview of each storm system and the associated hydrologic effects in the area.
