Tampa 'Canes

Zoidy - don't know if anyone said all this but, our biggest threat is not from hurricanes as such - we see more damage from the canes that mount up the Gulf, stall, and whip us since we are East of the storm. We had a noname (low in Gulf that became stationary) storm in 1995 that absolutely drenched us with 20" in 2 days that caused more flooding than anything I had seen since being here from 1968. But generally, since I have been here, the only storms that cruised overhead have been those that spark up out of nowhere from Mexico or in the SW Gulf and head right for us. I have always been more concerned that an Andrew type storm might zero in on us straight from Miami but that hasn't happened that I can remember.
