10 Years since Last Florida Hurricane
      #96102 - Sat Oct 24 2015 09:43 AM

Today marks the 10 year mark of the last Florida Hurricane landfall. That was Hurricane Wilma that made landfall near Cape Romano around 6aM in Southwest Florida and crossed the state and exited near Ft. Lauderdale as a Category 3 hurricane. Wilma was the strongest hurricane recorded in the Atlantic basin (by pressure) while it was still over water in the Western Caribbean.

Interestingly yesterday, Hurricane Patricia in the Eastern Pacific was the strongest hurricane recorded by recon in the Western Hemisphere when it made landfall near Cuixmala, Mexico. Reports have been sketchy in the area so far. Remnants will bring Flooding rains to Central Mexico and most of East Texas.

Beyond being Florida's last hurricane (of any strength), Wilma was also the last major hurricane to make landfall in the United States as a major hurricane (Cat 3+)at landfall. With El Nino having a very dampening effect in the Atlantic this year (and the opposite effect in the Pacific). The stage is set for a dramatic shift in the other direction next year. Early signs are that next season may be the most active in years in the Atlantic.
