1. It is rare but not unheard of.

2. The Atlantic hurricane season is officially from 1 June to 30 November. Unusual, not rare.

3. End of the season can be the worst part.
Recall that back in the god-awful 2005 season, the most intense hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic basin, Wilma, formed in mid-October.

And just last year, there were Cat-4 hurricanes in Oct. and Nov., though neither lasted very long.

6. Unfortunately, it killed over a hundred people in El Salvadore.
I'm not aware of casualties in any other country.
