Florida has gone 3,270 days without a hurricane – nearly nine years and, by far, the longest stretch on record (the next longest streak is 5 seasons from 1980-1984, in records dating back to 1851). Meanwhile, the Sunshine state’s population and development have boomed.

It really is something how quiet the Atlantic has been this season. It's just a matter of time before Florida gets slammed and as the article points out, all the building and new coastal population that has taken place since 04-05, could be a real disaster when the next big one hits.
