Prof. Roger Pielke Jr.: Major US Hurricane Drought Continues – ‘The five-year period ending 2013 has seen 2 hurricane landfalls. That is a record low since 1900’
'Two other five-year periods have seen 3 landfalls (years ending in 1984 and 1994). Prior to 1970 the fewest landfalls over a five-year period was 6. From 1940 to 1957, every 5-year period had more than 10 hurricane landfalls (1904-1920 was almost as active)...There is no evidence to support more or more intense US hurricanes. The data actually suggests much the opposite.'
