I know hurricanes are an issue everywhere in Florida, but are there areas where it is particularly bad or not as bad? In particular, is the Gulf Coast (Tampa area) as bad for hurricanes as South Florida, or is it not as bad there? What's the worst incident that has happened in the Tampa area in the last few years?
The last hurricane to hit the Tampa area was back in the 20's. Because of basic geography, it is less likely that hurricanes move into the gulf and then make the turn into the west coast. Usually hurricanes in the gulf hit the panhandle when they hit Florida, although they do sometimes hit south of Sarasota.
