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.[16] In the second week of September, Tropical Storm Gabrielle moved ashore on North Carolina, causing moderate wind gusts and light rainfall, although minimal damage.[19] 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.[21] 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).[22]

Three tropical cyclones directly affected Canada, although the first, Tropical Storm Barry, caused no reported effects.[9] The next storm, Tropical Storm Chantal, moved over the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland where flooding was observed.[12] Insured damage across the area totaled $5.8 million (2007 CAD; $5.5 million 2007 USD, $5.83 million 2011 USD).[46] The most notable storm was Hurricane Noel, which generated winds of 130 mph (210 km/h) in the Wreckhouse region of Newfoundland and Labrador.[47]
