Florida's Hurricane Drought
      #95382 - Mon Dec 15 2014 07:55 AM

Here is a link to an interesting article in the Jacksonville Florida Times Union. It discusses the current Florida record of 9 years without a hurricane landfall in the state - and the insurance coverage that the state has amassed - along with the hurricane premium that all Florida property owners have been paying. The article was highlighted in a recent National Weather Association Newsletter.

Florida's Hurricane Drought Ends [Re: Ed Dunham]
      #96896 - Fri Sep 02 2016 01:53 AM

On October 24, 2005, Major Hurricane Wilma moved northeast from the southeast Gulf of Mexico and made landfall near Cape Romano. Since then no hurricane made a landfall in Florida - until today, September 2, 2016, when Hurricane Hermine made landfall in Apalachee Bay at 1:30AM just to the east of St. Marks with winds of 80mph. That's a total of 3,966 days between landfalling hurricanes in the Sunshine State - a new record of almost 11 years. The previous record was from August 31, 1856 to October 23, 1865, or 3.299 days - over 9 years.
