Tropical Storm Erin made landfall in Texas, flooding more than 40 homes and businesses. Along its path into the central states, Erin killed 16 people—9 directly—and left about $25 million (2007 USD, $26.5 million 2011 USD) in total damage. In the second week of September, Tropical Storm Gabrielle moved ashore on North Carolina, causing moderate wind gusts and light rainfall, although minimal damage. Shortly thereafter, Hurricane Humberto made landfall on High Island, Texas, with winds of about 90 mph (150 km/h). $50 million (2007 USD, $53 million 2011 USD) in damages were reported. An unnamed tropical depression struck the coast of the Florida Panhandle about one week after Humberto dissipated. It caused no known deaths or serious injuries and just $6.2 million in damage (2007 USD, $6.57 million 2011 USD).
Three tropical cyclones directly affected Canada, although the first, Tropical Storm Barry, caused no reported effects. The next storm, Tropical Storm Chantal, moved over the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland where flooding was observed. Insured damage across the area totaled $5.8 million (2007 CAD; $5.5 million 2007 USD, $5.83 million 2011 USD). The most notable storm was Hurricane Noel, which generated winds of 130 mph (210 km/h) in the Wreckhouse region of Newfoundland and Labrador.
