The 2005 Atlantic hurricane season was a record event in the yearly formation of tropical cyclones in the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. 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 31 tropical depressions, 28 tropical storms, 16 hurricanes, and 7 major hurricanes, which are all record high totals for the Atlantic basin. In addition to this, the names Dennis, Katrina, Rita, Stan and Wilma were retired, setting another new record in the process for the most retired names in a season. They were replaced by Don, Katia, Rina, Sean and Whitney for the 2011 season.
