Re: Is the Georgia coast a dead zone for direct hurricane hits?

As for Manatee Co., certainly not. The further you go up the west coast of Florida toward the Big Bend, the less likely you have been over the past 100 years to see a tropical storm impact, yes, but that's not always been the case. Anywhere along the Florida coastline is at high risk in any given year for an impact from at least one tropical system; perhaps relative to other parts of the state Manatee Co. is relatively sheltered, but it's by no means a dead zone.
