"Sarasota has not been a bullís-eye for a major hurricane since reliable records began in 1871
Tampa has avoided a direct hit by a major hurricane since 1921."




This map of Cat 3 storms shows only one direct hit on Englewood in 1944 since 1851
However The Great Hurricane of 1921, The No-Name Storm of October 08, 1993 and many lesser unnamed storms have done extensive damage
