Came across this link on a travel site......pretty interesting - charts Carib hurricanes all the way back to 1851 on 60 different islands. AC is ranked 43.

Cool site, klcman...are you a scientist or something...I wasn't sure I could make any sense of it at first. Looks like the hurrican gods have been kind to AC in the last decade...hope they don't rear their ugly heads in the coming months.

Be a pal, save a Dal.

It all comes with the territory. SP is one of the most beautiful places on earth. 43 is quite far down the list.

If my son or daughter came 43/60 I would be gravely dissappointed. So we are one of the safer Islands in the Caribbean, noe that is good news.

Statistics are wonderfull, we are actually equal first for H5 as there has been only one!

I'll take the risk.

thanks for the compliment LA ( methinks wink )- and never noticed that left-handedness before :p

BB- you revealed my real point in posting - while NO ONE desires to go thru a hurricane, it's a resonably safe assumption that AC will be spared, statistically speaking.

Anybody wanna bet against that? Books are open 2:1 odds US or BZE!

Hi Spots 101X - sorry, but the hurricane gods have unforunately NOT spared AC during the past decade - Hurricane Keith - CAT 4 - stalled and stayed and stayed.

Diane is spot on, no pun intended. Even though stats are on the side of a non-event, the aberration does occur, often with sad results.

Positive thoughts - not this year!!!!!
