{{#invoke:Redirect template|main}} The 1880 Atlantic hurricane season ran through the summer and fall of 1880. This is the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the Atlantic basin. In the 1880 Atlantic season there were two tropical storms, seven hurricanes, and two major hurricanes (Category 3+). However, in the absence of modern satellite and other remote-sensing technologies, only storms that affected populated land areas or encountered ships at sea were recorded, so the actual total could be higher. An undercount bias of zero to six tropical cyclones per year between 1851 and 1885 and zero to four per year between 1886 and 1910 has been estimated.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }}</ref> Of the known 1880 cyclones, Hurricane Six was first documented in 1995 by Jose Fernandez-Partagas and Henry Diaz. They also proposed large changes to the known tracks of several other storms for this year and 're-instated' Hurricane Ten to the database.<ref name="1995b">Partagas, J.F. and H.F.
