Good work sorting that out. It looked like coastal South Carolina would definitely move up with all the activity there last year.

Jacksonville is like Tampa I guess, very often to be tropical storms rather than hurricanes. I guess I never noticed how often Jacksonville does get affected. Of course at least hurricane hits are rare.

That's interesting about return rates. I'm not sure how climate change is impacting hurricane hits in the Atlantic. Looking at the U.S. over the last decade I would have expected more hits, or at least stronger hits. It might be about the type of hit perhaps. Ike and Sandy (technically post-tropical at landfall) had higher surges than one would expect given the winds. I don't know if that was out of the ordinary historically though. As for other storms like Irene and Matthew in the U.S. I don't know if there was anything unusual about those, though with Irene it impacted some areas that had already received a lot of rain. Matthew did become extratropical in a transition that I guess surprised some people, but I mean unusual in terms of storms throughout recent history.

There have been some devastating hits internationally in the Atlantic in the past decade, but I don't really know enough to know whether there is an increase or decrease in recent hits, such as the last decade compared to the decade before that. And again more about whether they are stronger hits. You also get into damage versus death toll. The decade before last had Mitch. Dean and Felix in 2007 are still within last decade if looking back at last 10 hurricane seasons.
