Watch out For the Hurricanes

It’s been over a decade since Florida experienced a hurricane landfall, an improbable record that won’t likely last much longer, and may be snapped this season.

Since Category 3 Hurricane Wilma roared ashore in South Florida on Oct. 24, 2005, the Sunshine State has gone over 10 years without a single hurricane landfall.

That amounts to 66 straight Atlantic hurricanes – starting with Hurricane Beta in late October 2005 through Hurricane Alex in January 2016 – that haven’t come ashore in Florida.
