1976 Hurricane Season

By Wikipedia

The 1976 Atlantic hurricane season was an ongoing event in the annual cycle of tropical cyclone formation. It officially started June 1, 1976, and lasted until November 30, 1976.

Although several storms made landfall in 1976, they caused little reported damage. Hurricane Emmy caused 68 indirect deaths when a Venezuelan Air Force plane carrying a school choir crashed on a landing attempt at Lajes Air Force Base in the Azores during the storm. Hurricane Belle left 12 dead and caused $24M in damages in the Eastern United States between August 8-10, 1976.
