DANGER: Hurricanes Will Strike in South Florida

Hurricane season in Florida should not be taken lightly. More storms hit Florida than any other state in the United States. Since the mid-1800s, only 18 hurricane seasons have gone by without a single storm impacting the state. A grand total of about 10,000 people have been killed in relation to hurricane storms since the early 1900s and have caused over $115 billion in damage. Most of the damage has been from more recent hurricanes that occurred during the early 2000’s.
