Ok 2005. So I was one year off. Big deal. It doesn't change the facts I presented in my previous post.

According to the National Weather Service reports after Hurricane Charley, there is NO mention of any widespread damage done in Tampa....... Infact Hillborough County only saw a peak wind gust of 61 mph in Plant City..... Where do you get your information on widespread damage in Tampa from ?

Also, where do you come off stating that "they are always wrong and just make those predictions to scare people"....... I don't ever remember any of these scientists stating that any place will be hit by devistating hurricanes during a busy season....... All they predict is how busy a season it will be, not where they're going to go... ...... YES, last year they predicted a Hyper Active season and guess what, IT WAS !!!!... Perhaps not at your door step as no hurricanes hit the United States in 2010, so you feel that it was a bust of a season and these guys were ALL WRONG

Let me rephrase it. Charlie caused widespread damage, but only minimally affected Tampa. However, it did cause a significant amount of damage in Orlando and then jumped across the state and came out of the other side somewhere around Daytona as I recall.

Do you realize that nobody thought a hurricane would hit New Orleans until Katrina did? The same type of thinking is being applied that a storm cannot possibly hit Jacksonville or NE Florida. Somewhere along the line, a hurricane will hit there and then you'll be feeling like an idiot. The homes in NE FL are not built under the same codes as SE FL. So a substantial storm would cause quite a bit of damage compared to South FL.
