While the frequency of coastal hurricane activity is well documented, a systematic study of the relations of hurricanes affecting different regions has yet to be performed. Here we use network analysis to perform a systematic study of regional hurricane relations. As described in section 2, a network is graph connecting nodes. Here we consider a hurricane affecting a region as a node. If the hurricane affects more than one region then a link is drawn between nodes. The graph is undirected as the link between regions does not differentiate the time order of the regions affected.
