Not a Hurricane Magnet
Based on tracking for the past century, Jacksonville is the least likely city in Florida to be hit by a hurricane. The NOAA map shows landfall points of U.S. hurricanes between 1950 and 2006. Find Jacksonville on the east coast, immediately south of the Florida/Georgia border. Hurricane Dora in 1964 is the only hurricane to make landfall here in more than one hundred years. This Category Two hurricane took an improbable course when it ricocheted off a stronger hurricane stalled in the Atlantic. Dora’s impact on our area was blunted by its unusual trajectory.
