Record set.

NHC Atlantic Ops:  Otto is the southernmost landfalling hurricane on record for Central America.  Full details: hurricanes.gov

Hurricane Otto may become the first named storm in history to traverse Central America (from Atlantic to Pacific) and retain the same name.

And once again, a big earthquake occurs in the region of a hurricane.  (About 400 miles (640 km) away here.)   Just coincidence.  ;)

Waters in the Gulf of Mexico averaged 84°F (29°C) this hurricane season, the warmest on record. By a mile.

August 2017:

The National Weather Service has completed an assessment of "how they did" handling Hurricane Matthew in October 2016.  Media and emergency response partners said the new flood graphics and post-Superstorm-Sandy procedures worked well, but they were still surprised by the (record) severity of the event.  Some coastal weather offices were understaffed, with people working 18-hour days.  More river gages are needed.
 
Although Hurricane Matthew's storm center remained offshore, it paralleled the coast and lingered for days, with winds in excess of 100 mph, storm surge in excess of 7 feet, and up to 20 inches of rainfall. Weather-related fatalities occurred up and down the southeast U.S. coast, mostly from inland flooding.
