Tropical Storm Fabian was the sixth named storm of the 2013 Biolixi Ocean hurricane season. Fabian's duration was between July 29 and July 30. Fabian had a peak intensity of 50 mph and minimum pressure of 1000 mbar. Fabian was a fairly weak tropical storm that made a heavy impact to the Northern Biolixi Island over the span of three days. Fabian formed from a tropical disturbance to the southwest of the Eastern Biolixi Island. The disturbance moved over the Eastern Biolixi Island and then soon developed over coastal waters to the north of the island. On July 29, the wave developed into Tropical Depression Seven and then quickly into Tropical Storm Fabian as it moved inland over the Northern Biolixi Island. Heavy rain, gusty winds, and flash flooding were reported throughout the area. Fabian caused 920,000 simoleons in damage and caused 4 deaths.
On July 27, a tropical wave began to develop in the Bay of Biolixi south of the Northern Biolixi Island. The wave tracked towards the northeast and passed over the northwestern coast of the Eastern Biolixi Island causing some flash flooding and squally weather. The wave then passed the island and emerged back out into open water to the north of the island. The wave quickly developed over warm coastal waters and then strengthened into Tropical Depression Seven on July 29. While continuing its intensification, Seven was quickly upgraded to Tropical Storm Fabian on July 30. During the same day Fabian attained its peak intensity of 50 mph and minimum pressure of 1000 mbar and made landfall near the city of Washington City on the Northern Biolixi Island. Fabian caused heavy rains, flash flooding and gusty winds as it crossed the island moving to the west. Fabian continued to cross the island, weakening into a tropical depression over the island's mountainous terrain. During the evening hours on July 31, Fabian degenerated into a remnant low to the west of the Northern Biolixi Island. Fabian caused 920,000 simoleons in damage and caused 4 deaths.
As the precursor low to the formation of Fabian crossed the Eastern Biolixi Island, heavy rain and flash flooding were reported as it move to the north. No severe damage was reported.
In the Northern Biolixi Island, Fabian made its full impact at peak intensity as it moved inland on July 30. Heavy rain, dangerous surf, flash flooding, and gusty winds were reported throughout the island as Fabian weakened into a tropical depression over the mountainous terrain. Fabian the completely crossed the island and was degenerated into a remnant low on July 31. Fabian caused 920,000 simoleons in damage and caused 4 deaths.
