Weather Insider: An update on Hilary

Spencer Blum

It has been just over six months since Tropical Storm Hilary impacted parts of Mexico and the United States. While the storm certainly brought tropical storm conditions to Southern California, the National Hurricane Center found that the storm lost its tropical characteristics over Baja California. This means that a tropical storm technically did not make landfall in California.

It's important to stress that this is a very minuscule technicality and is a result of some complicated meteorology. The storm still led to three people losing their lives and to over 900 million dollars of damages across Mexico and the United States.
