Quote: As far as I can tell, just cause it goes inbetween Cuba and The Yucatan doesn't mean a Texas or Mexico hit.
1994 Tropical Storm BONNIE and Hurricane IVAN both went thru that area and neither hit Texas or Mexico. Not counting the 'remnants of Ivan... that was just too weird
Off the top of my head, Texas seems to get hit most often by storms that start up in the GOM or the Carribbean.Like Carla in 1961. Not CV storms. Not that it can't happen - the 1900 Galveston hurricane was a CV, I think.
Claudette comes to mind...
