Hurricane Season Is In The Rear View Mirror

The 2023 Atlantic hurricane season ends today, and this year marked one of the busiest seasons in the last eight decades, although here on the Space Coast we were for the most part, spared. Hurricane Idalia was the only hurricane to make U.S. landfall in 2023. It came ashore as a category-3 hurricane on August 30 near Keaton Beach, Florida, causing storm surge up to 12 feet in some areas, and widespread flooding in the big bend area of the state.
