This publication summarizes facts about cyclones (storms and hurricanes) and their passing over Puerto Rico and its surroundings along the course of 150 years, from 1867 through 2017. We used the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to identify the storms and hurricanes whose centers passed over Puerto Rico or within 86 miles of its coasts. Several characteristics are summarized, including system intensity, years and decades of occurrence, and samples of the impacts caused.

This publication started out as part of a project for the “Principios de población” (‘Principles of Population’) course, which is a course featured in the Sociology program curriculum in the Department of Social Sciences of the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez. This particular course was offered by Dr. Tania del Mar López Marrero during the August-December semester in 2015, and the students taking the course compiled part of the data comprising the publication. Each student is labeled as a compiler in the corresponding municipal population profiles. During the summer of 2016, sociology student Orializ Acevedo Muñiz, along with Dr. López Marrero, compiled additional data sets, developed maps and drafted the text.
