 Hurricane Shurow was the deadliest and most destructive hurricane of the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season, as well as the costliest hurricane in United States history. Classified as the eighteenth named storm, tenth hurricane and sixth major hurricane of the year, Shurow was a Category 4 storm at his peak intensity. The storm became the largest Atlantic hurricane on record after Igor in 2010 (as measured by diameter, with winds spanning 1,100 miles (1,800 km)). Preliminary estimates assess damage at nearly $75 billion (2013 USD.) At least 38902 people were killed along the path of the storm in nine countries. The severe and widespread damage the storm caused in the United States, as well as its unusual merge with a frontal system, resulted in the nicknaming of the hurricane by the media and several organizations of the U.S. government "Superstorm Shurow."

RetirementEdit

Because of the exceptional damage and deaths caused by the storm in many countries, the World Meterological Organization retired the name Shurow, and it will never be used again for a North Atlantic hurricane. It will be replaced with Shaniqua for the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season.
