The processes that allow a minor hurricane to strengthen into a major hurricane are not well understood and, as a result, predictions of intensification are not very good.

Hurricanes rarely reach New England, but when they do, they can be deadly.
Hurricanes Carol and Edna (1954)
Carol touched down as a Category 3 on August 31, 1954. With 100 mph winds, sometimes gusting up to 135 mph, Carol caused 68 deaths and over $460 million in damage, including destroying 4,000 homes, 3,500 cars, and over 3,000 boats. In downtown Providence water depths reached 12 feet, and strong winds knocked down the spire of the historic Old North Church in Boston. Just days later on September 11, Hurricane Edna made landfall in Maine and went on to cause another 2 deaths and $40 million in damage
Hurricanes Connie and Diane (1955)
Hurricane Connie formed on August 3, 1955 starting as a tropical storm. It hit North Carolina on August 13, 1955 as a Category 2 hurricane. Bands of heavy rain and wind reached southern New England and damages totaled nearly $86 million. Days later, Category 2 Diane made landfall, causing significant flooding and damage throughout southern New England. Diane still holds the record for wettest hurricane to hit Massachusetts, with rain accumulation reaching 19.75 inches. Diane was the costliest hurricane of the 1950s

I heard a military pilot say they can stop them and drop all their water by carpet bombing dry ice in from the top.
So they are all fake.

Mexico Beach, Florida
The roadways and transit hubs are a mess, without a heavy duty 4×4 it’s impossible to move around. Forget about trying to get power crews in here. Some roads are completely impassable – just like Andrew in ’92 that makes rescue and recovery efforts slow down dramatically.
No-one inside the impact zone is reading this because there is complete infrastructure failure. No power, no water, no cell towers, no communication, etc. It’s the old fashioned relay system… who are you? what is your status? who do you need us to contact? write it down….. then you travel 30 to 40 miles, find a network, and sit down and start making relay calls.
Please remember the importance of setting up a communication hub as part of your hurricane plan, this is exactly why.

Hurricane activity peaked in the 1990s, and the last decade has been at similar levels to the 1970s and 80s. https://notalotofpeo...ne-season-2018/
The 2018 Atlantic hurricane season was pretty ordinary:
There were eight Atlantic hurricanes, of which only two were major, Florence and Michael. As both of these hit the US, there was inevitably more media coverage.
Accumulated Energy ACE was also at unremarkable levels, given the current warm phase of the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation AMO when hurricanes tend to be stronger.
