Florida shatters record: Has ‘gone more than eight years without being struck by a hurricane’
Professor Roger Pielke Jr.: 'Arguably, we are living in a lull of hurricanes, at least in the context of the past 100 years or so.'
'For those scoring at home it's been 3,204 days since last Cat 3+ hurricane hit US. No one alive today has ever lived through such a streak.'
'The 3,151 days and counting with no Florida hurricane and no major U.S. hurricane shatters the previous records for hurricane "droughts," at least back to the turn of the previous century. In fact, from 1900 through 2013, the United States experienced a decrease in hurricane landfalls of more than 20%, and the strength of each year's landfalling storms has also decreased by more than 20%.'
