Hurricane Rina Loses Steam
Hurricane Rina, which has been re-routing more than a dozen cruise ships over the past week, has lost steam and won't hit as hard as previously thought.

According to a report from USA Today, the hurricane was feared to hit the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico and into Southern Florida. Carnival Cruise Ships has been re-routing ships all week, canceling stops in Roatan, Honduras, Cozumel, Mexico and Belize City, Beliz. Instead, the ships opted for stops at the hurricane-free Jamaica. Also, instead of a starting point in Port Canaveral, Fla., many ships sailed from Tampa. The line also promised an extra day at sea.

Those changes affected the vacations of more than 40,000 passengers, making it one of the more disruptive cruises in recent memory.

Hurricane Rina will probably be one of the last hurricanes of an unusual season. It's the 17th named storm of the season, making it the seventh busiest season since the records started in 1851. It also featured a hurricane moving as far north as New York and New Jersey, causing significant damage in some areas. If the storms make their way into the U.S., significant damage usually doesn't go further north than the Carolinas. The season officially ends on Nov. 30.
