Is something missing?
1000 Days Without Hurricane Landfall?
It has now been more than 750 days since any hurricane has made landfall in the US. This is one of the longest periods on record. Assuming that none do the rest of the current season, the quiesced period will almost certainly continue for at least 1,000 days.
The only three year period without hurricanes in US history was around the time of the Civil War.
It has also been 18 years since a category 5 hurricane struck the US.
