Interesting to see that parts of southern Texas, western Louisiana, coastal Georgia and large parts of Florida have not had direct hits.

They may still have been affected by weaker parts of the storms like the recent Irma over much of Florida and Georgia.

Fortunately for you Connecticut folk, Long Island is a lot longer in real life then on this flawed map ( )! The Island is almost as long as Connecticut.

Hahaha! Just noticed that.

Looks like the map was made before Irene in 2011. No Sandy either.



Nevermind... I see Irene. Apparently they only do 1st landfalls.

Kinda surprised to see none in DE or Maryland but understandable. Surprised at the West Florida gap between Alma 1966 and East 1950.

Nah, it shows as Cat 3. View bigger chart and clear Katrina is pointing to blue dot, the red dot is for Camille. Lots of data plots so a bit hard to see. But all Cat 5 canes are shown in red letters; Camille and Andrew.

Ok, I see what you are saying. Camille is actually pointing to 2 separate dots. I didn't see that initially. Thanks.
