Is the Georgia coast a dead zone for direct hurricane hits?
      Thu Jun 01 2006 03:47 PM

Ok, I know that David hit the Georgia coast in 1979.. But in the 1900s there really has not been many direct impacts to the Georgia coast ( Brunswick ) nor on the northeastern coast of Florida or the extreme southern coast of South Carolina ( Beaufort, Hilton Head Island ). I live near the Hilton Head Island area and we have had some close calls but nothing major. Hugo, passed about 80 miles to my north in 1989 it did not even bring a branch down in my yard. Every year it seems I watch as a frontal system dips south and sweeps them north and east just before they make it to our coast. The very few that have actually made impact have been pretty weak systems. ( Not counting backdoor systems )

So what is at play here? Why does it seem that this area is not as hurricane prone as other areas of the Gulf and Atlantic coast line? Is the area from Jacksonville, Fl - Beaufort, SC in a hurricane free zone? Also if anyone can find any information on the history of hurricanes hitting the Brunswick, Ga area please let me know.
