I'll be in Clearwater in 29 days!! I'll try to bring some non storm weather with me!
Does the Gulf coast usually get a lot of hurricanes that are high damage/casualty producing in your experience there?
Crazy that it could be starting so soon this year.

Actually Tampa/St. Pete/Clearwater have historically been spared any massive storm hits for quite along time. In fact, the last time a major storm made direct impact in this area was 1921. Even when Florida got battered in 2004-2005, the only storms we got were weakened storms that had traveled across the state.
Most likely, the storm today is just an anomaly, but it is hard to live here and not get obsessive.
