List of Maryland hurricanes (1980–present)

List of Maryland and Washington, D.C. hurricanes from 1980–present encompasses 54 known hurricanes, tropical storms and tropical depressions that have affected the U.S. state of Maryland and Washington, D.C. The majority of storms that affected Maryland also had some impact of Washington, D.C. Hurricanes are the most intense classification of these storms, while tropical storms and tropical depressions are generally weaker. The Delmarva Peninsula is often affected by cyclones that brush the East Coast.Cite web|author=Tropical Prediction Center|title=Best Track Anaylsis|year=|publisher=Unisys corporation|accessdate=2008-05-08|url=http://weather.unisys.com/hurricane/atlantic/index.html] Central and western Maryland, as well as and Washington, D.C. commonly receive rainfall from the remnants of storms that make landfall elsewhere and track (move) northward. On rare occasions, the area sees the effects of Pacific storms; one such example of this is Hurricane Tico, which made landfall on Mexico and moved inland. Four tropical cyclones in the state have caused five known deaths.

Hurricane Ivan was the deadliest storm, indirectly killing two women when a tree was blown on their house due to a tornado spawned by the system. The most damaging storm was Hurricane Isabel, which leaves $125 million (2003 USD, $146 million 2008 USD) in damage. No storms during the period have caused sustained hurricane strength winds (winds of 74 mph (120 km/h) or greater), as only two in recorded history have done so.cite web|author=Hurricane Research Division|year=2008|title=Chronological List of All Hurricanes which Affected the Continental United States: 1851-2007|publisher=National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration|accessdate=2008-03-21|url=http://www.aoml.noaa.gov/hrd/hurdat/ushurrlist18512007.txt] There have been examples of peak gusts coming close to or exceeding that level.
