With the current Hurricane Florence beating into our eastern USA, l thought it would be interesting to learn a few facts. Indeed, we have had some powerful Hurricanes in my time, but our tracking and preparation have undoubtedly saved many lives. The Great Hurricane of 1780 killed over 20,000 people; and, in 1900, 12,000 people died in Galveston, TX from another storm. There have been 905 Hurricanes since reliable recording started in 1851. The record Year was 2005 with 15 Hurricanes!!
