Taking a direct hit from a hurricane is a rarity for Jacksonville (and the GA coast for that matter); the Georgia Bight keeps the indented coastline a good distance from the Gulfstream, and generally hurricanes traveling up the coast will be pulled out into the stream until reaching the SC or NC coast. It's not to say that storm surges are not an issue from time to time.

You beat me to it, Lovin...yes, hurricanes can hit the Georgia Coast and the Florida First Coast, but it is rare. That's why I say the Georgia Coast and the First Coast are great if one wants to invest in a subtropical coastal locale.
