Major Hurricanes Less Common in Florida
Thanks to Dr. Roger Pielke, Jr., we learn that major hurricanes are much less common than they used to be. At the turn of the 20th century, a major hurricane struck Florida, on average, once every 1,200 days. Now, the interval has grown to 1,800 days -- a major improvement, especially given the huge increase in population and potential for property loss.
