Yesterday marked the official beginning of the hurricane season in the Atlantic. To recognize the start of the season, the Cyclone Center team have added four hurricanes that all struck Florida ten years ago; Charley, Frances, Ivan, and Jeanne. These ferocious storms claimed 34 lives and caused $18.9 billion in damages. You can help improve our understanding of these powerful storms at www.cyclonecenter.org
