Could this just be a coincidence?
Category 5 is the highest on the scale, and only three Category 5 hurricanes are known to have hit the U.S. mainland — most recently, Andrew, which smashed South Florida in 1992.
Am I reading this right? Only three cat. 5 hurricanes have hit the mainland and 2 of these this year and one 13 years ago. I realize there are other possible explanations but this wouldn't have anything to do with global warming, would it?
