imo it is unusual to have two named storms making landfall so close together. Since I have been living in Florida, i think the closest between 2 named storms has been 1 week, but never hitting the state twice.
i'm not worried about the strength of the storms and the immediate damage, but more so of the flooding and all the relating problems that urban flooding causes, including potholes, mosquitoes, etc.

Florida is the only place we want to move. We were going to move to the inside, gulf of mexico, because very little cains. Now there are two at the same time, welcome to crazy world.

Rare. But not too strange.
Floridians just can't seem to escape the rain though....
It looked like Bonnie would remain a Tropical Storm as it hit, but she has gained some steam in the past 12 hours, and just may reach hurricane strength.
Charley will be interacting with land so that should keep it from becoming to strong of a hurricane (which it will more than likely become in the next 24 hours or less).
my local weather guy just said, that two named storms have never hit Florida within 24 hours of each other or less in hurricane history....so this is unusual
