The seventh named storm of the 2013 Atlantic Tropical Season would have two lives as a tropical system.

First officially recognized as Tropical Depression Seven by the National Hurricane Center on September 4th, what would become Tropical Storm Gabrielle formed to the south of Puerto Rico.

Despite bringing rain and some wind to that country, it quickly became disorganized and was downgraded to a Tropical Depression the next day. Officially, the storm dissipated towards the end of September 5th, atlhough it still brought a heavy rain threat to parts of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands at that time.

However, days later on September 10th, the remnants of the storm had become much more organized and Tropical Storm Gabrielle had second life to the south of Bermuda, prompting Tropical Storm Warnings for the island nation.

Bermuda did experience some Tropical Storm conditions over the next day or two, as the storm began to weaken. By September 12th, it was still barely hanging on as a Tropical Depression, but became a Tropical Storm yet again before finally losing all tropical characteristics as it brought rain into parts of Canada on the 13th.

It should be noted that between Gabrielle and Humberto, a storm that was not named—Tropical Depression Eight—did form and bring flooding rains to parts of Mexico, including Veracruz, during the first week of September.
