Hurricane Fox formed off the Cape Verde Islands on September 2, 1951. Fox developed into a category three hurricane containing winds of 185 km/h at its maximum strength. The hurricane entered the CHC Response Zone on September 9 as it weakened just slightly into a category two hurricane, and brought winds of 157 km/h to the CHC Response Zone. Fox later left the CHC Response Zone on September 10 and diminished on September 11. Fox did not damage Canada.
