This information updates a popular statistical summary about hurricanes that have affected the United States this century. That study, which included a tabulation of the largest US losses of life caused by those storms, had no counterpart for earlier tropical cyclones or for casualties incurred elsewhere. In this presentation that work is extended, providing a catalog of Atlantic tropical cyclones associated with loss of life during the period 1492-1994. The catalog comprises two lists. The first list (Appendix 1) provides information about tropical cyclones responsible for at least 25 deaths. The second list (Appendix 2) identifies storms associated with loss of life that, while not quantified, may have reached at least 25, according to records about those events. In addition the site includes an introduction, tropical cyclone terminology, casualty information, conclusions, acknowledgements, and references.
