The 1971 Pacific hurricane season was an above average event in the yearly formation of tropical cyclones in the eastern and central Pacific Ocean. This page will document my opinion on intensities during the season after seeing the information needed to form this opinion. This may include Dvorak numbers, Tropical Cyclone Advisories and reports, and any observations made during the tropical cyclone personally if it made landfall. Based on this summary, there were 19 tropical depressions, 18 tropical storms, 13 hurricanes, and 7 major hurricanes, setting a new record for the most hurricanes and major hurricanes in a season.
