"The 1999 hurricane season had above normal activity with 12 named tropical cyclones, 4 of which were tropical storm strength (<64 mph) and 8 of which were hurricanes. This compares to the long-term average of ten named tropical cyclones: six hurricanes and four tropical storms. Table 1 lists these tropical cyclones along with their dates, minimum sea level pressures, maximum sustained wind speeds, category classes, U.S. dollar damages, and directly related deaths. Note that the total number of storm-related deaths is often higher."
