Landfalling Hurricanes Amelia Island?

I find maps like this interesting.  As I remember….Cumberland Island was chosen as a location for Dungeoness partly because this part of Florida is hit less frequently by storms.  Another map showed our part of the state at a 1/100 chance of landfall for major storms making landfall in the US.

What always sticks with me is the insurance coverage and the effect on North Florida rates when, historically, our chance of seeing a storm is far less!!!
