Welcome to featured Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of the featured Wikipedia article every day.
The featured article for Saturday, 10 February 2018 is Tropical Depression Ten (2005).
Tropical Depression Ten was a tropical depression of the record-breaking 2005 Atlantic hurricane season. It formed on August 13 from a tropical wave that emerged from the west coast of Africa on August 8. As a result of strong wind shear, the depression remained weak and did not strengthen beyond tropical depression status. It degenerated on August 14, although its remnants partially contributed to the formation of the tropical depression which eventually became Hurricane Katrina. Thus, it is generally referred to as "the precursor to Katrina". The cyclone had no effect on land, and did not directly result in any fatalities or damage.
