Art (i.e. luck) of staying hurricane free

Alma (Jun 1966) was the earliest,

And Kate (Nov 1985) was among the latest.

It's now been nine straight years
since a hurricane-strength storm 
made landfall on Florida soil.


August, September and October that form the peak.

And this year for the 9th year in a row Florida got none.


That's the longest such stretch in modern hurricane history.
