The Gulf Coast Hurricanes

The Gulf Coast Hurricanes is a newly-formed challenge team for 2019! Our core focus is on profiles associated with Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas, but you are not restricted to that and may work on any profiles you wish.


Our mission is to clear out as many database suggestions (aka errors) as possible. For convenience, this page contains links to suggestion reports relevant to the Gulf Coast states of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas.
