It is uncommon for hurricanes to reach the Midwest, yet remnants of storms such as Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Tropical Storm Claudette in 1979 have approached within 10 miles of cities like Columbus, Ohio, and St. Louis, Missouri. Regionally sensitive areas, such as the Florida Panhandle or Outer Banks, have endured numerous, if not over a hundred, hurricanes over the last century and a half. In fact, Florida alone has accounted for approximately 40% of all U.S. hurricanes, as reported by NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory.

Since 1851, the NOAA reports that more than 300 hurricanes have struck the coastline and mainland U.S. That averages out to nearly 18 hurricanes per decade. Notably, the deadliest hurricane in U.S. history is the Galveston hurricane of 1900, which claimed the lives of roughly 8,000 to 12,000 people, according to NOAA. Hurricane Katrina, which occurred in 2005, stands as the deadliest since then, with at least 1,500 fatalities. Katrina also holds the record as the costliest storm, causing nearly $200 billion in damages adjusted for inflation, as stated by NOAA.

The 2024 hurricane season officially starts in June, even though the first storm can form earlier. Historically, the earliest observed Atlantic hurricane occurred on March 7, 1908. The peak of the hurricane season is in September, with most activity and hurricane landfalls happening between mid-August and mid-October. Although hurricane landfalls in June are uncommon, tropical storms can still make an impact.
