Damage in Florida was estimated at $10 million, and there were six deaths in the state. [6] Hurricane-force winds were observed in the Florida Keys, where 160 homes and 190 trailers were damaged. Alma developed on June 4 over Central America, and while moving through Honduras, it dropped heavy rainfall that killed at least 75 people in the city of San Rafael. [1] One of the deaths was a man who had a heart attack while preparing to evacuate. [6][7] During the next few days, the depression organized further and acquired a warmer center of circulation while heading west-southwestward and then to the east-southeast. [7] This was the earliest date of landfall in the United States since 1825. [6] Between July 17 and July 19, the storm moved across the Bahamas, before turning northeastward.
