Kenneth was the eleventh named storm of the 2012 Biolixi Ocean hurricane season. Kenneth's duration was between August 18 and August 25. Kenneth was a strong tropical storm with 70 mph winds and minimum pressure of 989 mbar. Kenneth formed form a tropical disturbance that formed a few hundred miles of the coast of Roanoke. The disturbance became Tropical Depression Eleven and moved ever so slowly up the coast, bringing heavy rain, flooding, mudslides, and gusty winds. Eleven became Tropical Storm Kenneth when it raced quickly off to the northwest. Kenneth caused around 115 million simoleons in damage and caused around 4 deaths.

Meteorological HistoryEdit

Kenneth's Path

Kenneth's Path

On August 16, the National Hurricane Center monitored a tropical disturbance that formed off the coast of Roanoke. The system slowly developed off the coast at a near stationary pace, dumping heavy rain in along the coast. On August 18, the tropical disturbance was upgraded to Tropical Depression Eleven. Roanoke was severely damaged with flooding, mudslides along the coasts, and very dangerous rip currents. Eleven slowly moved up along the coast for several days continuing to bring these types of threats. Eleven steadily moved up along the coast and then pushed off to the northwest where it became Tropical Storm Kenneth on August 21. Kenneth continued its path to the northwest, not affecting any land. On August 22, Kenneth reached its peak intensity with 70 mph winds and minimum pressure of 989 mbar. On August 24, Kenneth weakened into a tropical depression. Kenneth then dissipated after meeting very cold waters on August 25.

Preparations and ImpactEdit

RoanokeEdit

Even though Kenneth was only a tropical depression, it still brought heavy flooding rains to Roanoke since it moved at a near stationary pace up the coast. Since it was only a tropical depression most, if not everyone, didn't really prepare for the storm, due to tropical depressions in the past were very weak and meaningless. When Kenneth was Tropical Depression Eleven, it moved up the coast and then began to move to the northwest, and that is when it became Kenneth. Most people along the coast are just happy that Kenneth wasn't a hurricane when it hit the area, unlike Hurricane William of 2011. Kenneth caused around 115 million simoleons in damage and caused around 4 deaths
