Allison - 2001



Tropical Storm Allison formed in the western Gulf of Mexico on June 5, 2001. The storm system then moved inland over Texas and Louisiana slowly meandering eastward. Allison moved into the Atlantic near the North Carolina - Virginia Coast and continued to spread precipitation to the Northeast. After fourteen days of drenching rains, flooding, and wind damage, Allison became the most costly tropical system to affect the Unitied States to date.
