I'm not sure on this one, I've heard of it before, but I myself don't have the answer.

Could someone answer this question as I have the same one and don't want to make a new thread. Thanks a bunch.

It is a box (a rectangle...don't know the exact points, but the 20/60 point is one of the key ones) that the majority of major hurricanes that affected S. Florida passed through/under. It doesn't mean that if a storm were to pass through there, it will hit south Florida, nor does it mean that if it doesn't pass through there that it won't hit S. Florida. It is named after Paul Hebert, the fmr. NHC forecaster who coined the terminology.
