Re: Least hit ?


The state Capital is the safest place on the map, follow by Jacksonville(Which has alot of lines going through it from the southwest). Funny, Katrina was once forcast to go turn toward Tallahassee.

The map is missing some significant storms that hit Tallahassee and the coast immediately south of it during the 20 years I lived there, most prominently Hurricane Kate, a Cat 1 that followed the 1877 track and knocked down almost every tree over a power line in the town, 20 years ago this November...had a co-worker without power for two weeks, and lots of damage. It doesn't show the dozen or so tropical storms that caused flooding in the many low-lying areas amid the city's hills, or the March 1993 No-Name storm that devastated the coast of the Big Bend and produced the heaviest snow flurries I ever saw in Florida. It also doesn't include the winter storms that hit twice in 20 years and left snow accumulation on the ground for a day or more. I know Florida, Florida history, and Florida storm history, and I stand by Jacksonville as my choice of best overall weather and lowest serious storm threat in the state.
