This year's hurricane season — which officially came to a close on Friday — has proved to be one of the most active on record, with Hurricane Isaac and Superstorm Sandy wreaking havoc on two coastlines, although both storms, technically, did not meet the definition of “major” hurricanes.

This season ranks third among the most active since record-keeping began in 1851 with 19 named storms, 10 of them hurricanes.
