I am a life long Brevard county, FL resident and the old timers say there is some Native legend about this area, Cape Caneveral, that for some reason
it keeps away bad storms and weakens others when they get here. Some also say that legend is one of the big reasons why the cape has the space
A scientific guess is this lattitude(just south of 30N) is a transitional place from the tropics to the mid-lattitudes so when the storms make it here
they have to change a little to adjust to the different weather enviroment they're moving into.
Weather modification has been done on small scales, i.e. seeding clouds for rain. It definatly is not with out reason that with out technology we
could try to break down the eye wall, where the strongest winds of these things are located. Maybe that explains why Francis at one time had a
gigantic eye like feature, they "attacked" the eyewall over and over again and it eventually found balance as a huge donut like hole.
