Major canes: From weather expert Jim Lushine:
Last year's wimpy hurricane season had a meager two hurricanes, neither of which was a major one with winds greater than 110 mph.
The average number of hurricanes each year is six with two reaching major status. Which year since hurricane records were started in 1851 has had the greatest proportion of major hurricanes?
It was 1964, the year of the major hurricane. There were six hurricanes that year, and every single one was a major at some point.
Three hurricanes hit Florida that year, including Cleo, where the eye moved directly northward through Biscayne Bay. Cleo was a major hurricane in the Caribbean Sea, but was at Category 2 intensity when it affected southeast Florida.
The other two Florida hurricanes that year were both of major intensity at landfall, including Dora, which took an unusual track and moved directly east into Jacksonville, and Isbell, which moved onshore along the southwest Florida coast.
