Hurricane Season is Ending, Florida Looking Good!
The Sunshine State will continue to have sunshine!
With less than a month left to hurricane season 2006, it seems as if the quiet storm year may fade out with a peaceful ending.
An average hurricane season produces ten named storms, six of which become hurricanes, two of them intense. This year, so far, the Atlantic basic has spawned nine named storms, five of which become hurricanes, two intense.
Last year, the record-breaker, had twenty-eight named storms, fifteen of them hurricanes, seven of those intense. This year, Florida was hit by no hurricanes and only two tropical storms – Alberto, on the Gulf Coast and Ernesto, in the south.
In 2006, no storms were worries to Central Florida. During the past 145 years – the time of serious record-keeping of storms – Florida has been hit by only four hurricanes and six tropical storms in November. Two of the hurricanes were category 1 storms, two were category 2.
