1880 Atlantic hurricane season

The 1880 Atlantic hurricane season ran through the summer and fall of 1880. This is the period of each year. In the 1880 Atlantic season there were two tropical storms, seven hurricanes, two major hurricanes. However, in the absence of modern satellite and other remote-sensing technologies, only storms that affected populated land areas or encountered ships at sea were recorded, so the actual total could be higher. An undercount bias of zero to six tropical cyclones per year between 1851 and 1885 and zero to four per year between 1886 and 1910 has been estimated. Of the known 1880 cyclones, Hurricane Six was first documented in 1995 by José Fernández-Partagás and Henry Díaz, they proposed large changes to the known tracks of several other storms for this year and're-instated' Hurricane Ten to the database. A preliminary reanalysis by Michael Chenoweth, published in 2014, found thirteen storms, nine hurricanes, four major hurricanes; the Atlantic hurricane database recognizes eleven tropical cyclones for the 1880 season.

In the 1880 there were two tropical storms, seven hurricanes, two major hurricanes in the Atlantic basin. Several of the storms caused considerable loss of life. Tropical Storm One impacted the Texas coast in late June. Hurricane Two was, at one point, an intense Category 4 hurricane, it caused extensive destruction and loss of life at Matamoros, at Port Isabel, Texas. Hurricane Three impacted Cuba and the Bahamas. Hurricane Four made two landfalls, both in Florida; the first was near present-day Cocoa Beach on August 29 as a Category 2 hurricane and the second was on the Florida Panhandle as a tropical storm. The storm caused a shipwreck resulting in several deaths. Hurricane Five was a Category 1 hurricane active between August 26 and September 4, which remained at sea. Hurricane Six originated as a tropical storm in the Gulf of Mexico, having crossed the Florida peninsula, developed into a Category 1 hurricane off the coast of South Carolina on September 9. Hurricane Seven was a Category 1 hurricane first seen on September 8 off the coast of Georgia.

It on September 10 hit Newfoundland as a tropical storm. Hurricane Eight was an intense Category 4 hurricane active at the end of September and start of October, it was responsible for several shipwrecks. Hurricane Nine developed from a tropical storm in the Gulf of Mexico, it impacted both the Yucatán Peninsula and Florida and brought violent gales along the Eastern Seaboard between Cape Hatteras and Jacksonville, Florida. Hurricane Ten was a Category 1 hurricane that formed south of Bermuda on October 10. Although it never made landfall and weakened first to a tropical storm to an extratropical storm within a week, it did strike several ships; the last storm of the year was Tropical Storm Eleven, known to have existed for three days in October to the northeast of the Abaco Islands. The season generated an accumulated cyclone energy of 131 units, above the 1981–2010 median of 92. Based on other metrics, the season was near average; the first tropical storm of the season formed early on June 21, about 215 miles south-southwest of Cape San Blas, Florida.

On the same date, the schooner James Andrew registered a small area of severe squalls. Over the next few days, the system moved westward to west-northwestward, maintaining winds of 45 mph. At 15:00 UTC on June 25, the slow-moving cyclone made landfall southwest of present-day Bay City, Texas; the system weakened as it headed inland, dissipating eighteen hours later. A weather station in Galveston recorded 2.56 inches of rain in an eight-hour period. No other effects were reported in neighbouring Louisiana. A preliminary reanalysis in 2014 concluded that the system did not qualify as an organized tropical system; the second tropical cyclone and first hurricane of the season originated about 130 miles east of Basse-Terre, Guadeloupe, at 00:00 UTC on August 4. The cyclone tracked westward through the southernmost Leeward Islands, generating southeast winds and sea-level pressures of 29.78 inHg. Strengthening, it reached hurricane intensity on August 6, passed 35 miles south of Jamaica, producing unsettled weather and falling barometers in Kingston.

The storm attained winds of 105 mph at 12:00 UTC on August 7—an intensity it maintained over the next few days while turning west-northwestward. On August 9, the hurricane struck the Yucatán Peninsula near Puerto Morelos, weakened as it headed inland. Reaching the southern Gulf of Mexico as a tropical storm on August 10, the cyclone underwent steady intensification: forty-eight hours it became a major hurricane, peaked at 150 mph early on August 13. At 01:00 UTC, the strong Category 4 hurricane made landfall in northern Tamaulipas, 15 miles south of Port Isabel and passed over Matamoros and Brownsville; the system weakened as it paralleled the Rio Grande, curved into South Texas, dissipated on August 14. The storm caused several ships to be stranded in or near the Yucatán Channel. Hurricane-force winds occurred offshore of western Cuba. Hitting close to the Mexico–United States border, the powerful cyclone impacted both nations; the pressure in the storm was determined to be 931 mb at the time of landfall, based on a reading of 28.315 inHg coincident with hurricane-force winds at Brownsville, an inland site.

The cyclone destroyed three hundred homes in Matamoros and downed buildings and fences in Brownsville. At the latter place, debris covered street

Clear Rivers

Clear Rivers is a fictional character from the Final Destination film series. Created by Jeffrey Reddick and portrayed by Ali Larter, the character first appeared in Final Destination as a high school senior who, after surviving a plane explosion foreseen by Alex Browning, assists him on "cheating Death" by rescuing the other survivors from their impending doom. Clear returns in the sequel Final Destination 2, where she aids Kimberly Corman in saving the new set of victims from the Route 23 pileup; the character appears in the novelizations of the two motion pictures. Created by Reddick, Clear was further developed by James Wong and Glen Morgan to be "the loner of the group" and a girl who's insecure about her sex appeal and tries to hide it with a gothic appearance. Larter described her as someone who's suffered from many losses in her life, causing her to close off from other people. One of the survivors from the first film, Clear was chosen by New Line Cinema to return for the second film instead of Alex as they believed she fitted the narrative of the story better.

Along with Tony Todd, Larter is the only actor to reprise their role in the series. Although the character development of Clear was praised, Larter's performance received mixed reviews. Larter won a Young Hollywood Award for her role and was nominated for a Blockbuster Entertainment Awards. Clear Rivers is introduced in the 2000 film Final Destination as one of the seniors from the fictional Mt. Abraham High School boarding Volée Airlines Flight 180 heading to Paris on May 13, 2000. On board, Alex Browning warns the passengers about his vision of the airliner exploding in mid-air, gaining no support from anyone, except for Clear. She, along with Alex and their classmates Tod Waggner, Terry Chaney, Carter Horton, Billy Hitchcock, teacher Ms. Valerie Lewton are removed from the plane before it explodes in mid-air minutes after takeoff, killing the other 286 passengers and crew. Thirty-nine days while at the memorial for the victims, she presents Alex a white rose as gratitude for saving her life.

After Tod dies in a freak accident, they go to the morgue to see his body and find mortician William Bludworth. Bludworth warns them that they're still in danger. Realizing this, they attempt to save the remaining survivors. Following Terry's and Ms. Lewton's deaths, they are successful in saving Carter's life. Only seconds Billy dies, causing them to realize that if they intervene in someone's death they can save that person. Believing himself to be next, Alex withdraws from the group. After Alex realizes that Clear is next to die he goes to her house to save her. Due to her house experiencing short circuits, she attempted to escape with her car. Despite the car being trapped by livewires, Alex manages to save her and they both survive the ordeal. Months in Paris, Alex has doubts about their triumph over Death. Noticing signs of impending doom Clear saves Alex from a speeding bus but they both witness Carter's demise by a falling sign. In the alternate ending of the film and Clear have sex while lurking at a beach, resulting in her pregnancy.

On, Alex dies after the livewire sets him on fire while saving her. Nine months she gives birth to their son, naming him Alexander Chance, reunites with Carter, safe in the knowledge that they defeated Death. Clear returns in the sequel Final Destination 2, set a year after the events of Final Destination. After Evan Lewis' death, Kimberly Corman visits Clear inside Stonybrook Mental Institution and asks for her help concerning the safety of the Route 23 pileup survivors: Officer Thomas Burke, Kat Jennings, Rory Peters, Eugene Dix, as well as Nora Carpenter and her son Tim. While she does inform Kimberly of what she knows about Death, she's still too distraught over Alex's death and tells Kimberly to let the other survivors perish and save only herself. After Tim dies, she changes her mind and accompanies Kimberly and Thomas to Bludworth, who informs them the equilibrium of Death and "new life", implying their salvation upon the unborn son of survivor Isabella Hudson; the three of them gather the remaining survivors to Thomas' apartment but despite Clear's and Kat's attempts to save her, Nora gets decapitated by an elevator.

En route to Isabella and the other realize that all of them are still alive due to the Flight 180 survivors having gotten off the plane. While driving to the hospital, they are involved in a car accident that leaves Eugene needing medical help and leads to the deaths of Kat and Rory. Following their deaths, Clear and Thomas go to the hospital to save Isabella. While they do succeed in finding her in time and ensuring her infant survives, Kimberly has another premonition that reveals to her Isabella was never meant to die in the pileup, meaning they're still in danger. Understanding the situation, Clear tries to find Eugene's room. Finding him contained by an oxygenated room, she opens the door, subsequently loosening the plug of Eugene's defribrillator, creating a spark that incinerates Eugene's room, killing them both. In her alternate death scene, Clear smiles in contentment. Clear's death was shown in x-ray format during the opening credits of The Final Destination and in the death montage of Final Destination 5.

A reference is made to the character through an easter egg in The Final Destination, where Clear's name appears on a sign of a brand of water that reads "Clear Rivers Water". The sign triggers the main visionary and alerts him that water will be causing an upcoming fatal accident. Clear Rivers made her literary debut in January 2006 when Natasha Rhodes released a novelization of the film entitled Final Destination; the book follows the events of the film
