Hurricane season has been good to South Florida residents in 2018, but it is important to remain vigilant and continually monitor the weather.

Florida residents are all too familiar with hurricane season and the massive destruction that it can cause. Unfortunately, the 2017 hurricane season broke all kinds of records in regard to damage and disaster. With the most notable storms of Harvey, Irma, and Maria, people across the globe have suffered tremendously at the hands of one of nature’s scariest, most unpredictable weather threat. In many cases, the damages incurred following a particularly bad hurricane create lengthy, sometimes permanent, effects on the physical locations, the community members, and the economy.

While troubling to recall some of the most destruction storms, it is important to remember that hurricanes are something to be taken very seriously. In Florida, Hurricane Andrew was a big wake-up call for many. As such, remembering some of the biggest storms of the past can serve to enhance preparation in the future. In no particular order, the following are some of the worst hurricanes of all-time:
