Dora was a powerful, major hurricane in the Pacific Ocean.
It rapidly-intensified from a tropical storm into a hurricane in the Eastern Pacific basin before travelling west across the ocean. Dora’s long journey saw it enter the Central Pacific basin, then eventually the Western Pacific basin when it crossed the International Date Line, earning the name Typhoon Dora. This rare feat was only accomplished by one other storm.
As Dora passed south of the Hawaiian Islands, it was believed to have been somewhat responsible for the conditions that lead to the devastating Maui wildfires in August 2023.
