Wednesday makes the final day of the 2016 Hurricane Season – one that saw Florida end its streak of avoiding being hit by a hurricane.
Overall, there were 15 named storms in the Atlantic this season. Seven of them became hurricanes, with three of them being classified as major storms.
After not being directly hit by a hurricane since the 2005 season, Florida saw that streak come to a close when Hurricane Hermine struck the Florida Panhandle, just south of Tallahassee, on September 1st.
Parts of the state were also hit in early October by Hurricane Matthew – which initially was on a path to hit South Florida, but stayed offshore before hitting such cities as Daytona Beach and Jacksonville.
