I did this poll last year and and Key West was the winner, but not serious hurricanes to talk about. What about this year? Will the state come out without any serious damage. Also take a look at the hurricane checklists in this forum, time to refresh our hurricane knowledge...

only the coastal cities? Ocala had the bejesus knocked out of it in '04. I still see blue tarps on roofs around here.

Key West is such a small target. I doubt it will ever be hit directly! Miami on the other hand, is way overdue. I would hope that if any hurricane hit Florida, it would go there, to a place that really deserves the action. Of course now that I said it - that can't happen.

I think the Tampa Bay Area and Panhandle will see some action in the coming years. The keys and SE Florida are also the other high risk areas, as usual.

well now that you said it can't happen, it's going to happen

Are the official predictions out for this year? I heard we're in a mild La Nina so hurricanes this year might be more and stronger.

Active hurricane season predicted

Posted On: April 09, 2008 12:34 PM CST
By Mark A. Hofmann

FORT COLLINS, Colo.—This year’s Atlantic hurricane season will be more active than average, with eight hurricanes forming, forecasters at the Tropical Meteorological Project at Colorado State University predicted Wednesday.
That’s one more hurricane than the forecasting team predicted in its Dec. 7, 2007, projection. Of the eight hurricanes, four will grow to be intense hurricanes, according to the team. Once again, that is an increase of one intense hurricane over December’s prediction.
“Information obtained through March 2008 indicates that the 2008 Atlantic hurricane season will be much more active than the average 1950-2000 season,” the team’s report said. The team predicted that there is a 69% probability that at least one major hurricane—defined as a storm with sustained winds of at least 111 miles per hour—will make landfall somewhere on entire U.S. coastline this year, compared with an average 52% probability in the last century. The report also calls for an “above-average major hurricane landfall risk” in the Caribbean this year.
