FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (AP) — The final weeks of this historic hurricane season have brought an unusual collection of storms.

Subtropical Storm Theta became the 29th named Atlantic storm of the season. It is chugging east toward Europe on the cusp of hurricane status.

The last time there were two named storms churning at the same time this late in the year was in December 1887. But wait there’s more.

A tropical wave moving across the Atlantic somehow survived the mid-November winds that usually decapitate storms. The system now has a 70% chance of becoming the 30th named storm, Iota.
