In 2005 Hurricane Emily hit Mexico as a strong Category 4 hurricane. It became the earliest record category 5 hurricane and the strongest storm ever to form in July. The name wasn't retired, for some unexplained reason which is why the storm name is in use today. There was extensive damage in the Cancun/Cozumel area's on the Yucatan Peninsula.
