By now, you probably know that Hurricane Matthew has made landfall in Florida.
A couple weeks ago, a storm surge inundated the Tallahassee area.
But the storm’s impact on the Florida state was not nearly as profound.
For one, Florida is a state that has been hit by two major hurricanes in less than a decade.
Hurricane Andrew hit in 2005, and Hurricane Wilma in 2011.
And in all three cases, the impact on Florida was not as devastating as Matthew’s.
The first hurricane of that type hit in late May.
The second hit in October of that year, but it lasted for a month and a half.
Both hurricanes caused severe damage to the state, but only Wilma caused significant loss to the financial and infrastructure sectors.
In fact, it was Wilma that was named the worst hurricane in U.S. history by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
And the third hurricane of this type hit just after Christmas of last year, and it was not named by NOAA as the worst.
The difference in Florida’s hurricane damage was that Wilma was a Category 1 storm, and Matthew was a Class 2.
But that is not to say that Wilmot is any less devastating than Matthew.
Matthew was the worst Category 1 hurricane in history to hit Florida.
The Category 1 designation indicates that a hurricane is capable of causing substantial damage to coastal communities.
That is the most powerful category in the National Hurricane Center’s system.
So while Matthew’s damage was not quite as devastating, it is still far from catastrophic.
But Wilma also hit a lot of the major Florida counties during its first week of landfall.
Wilma hit the Miami-Dade, Palm Beach, Palm Bay, Broward, Hillsborough, and St. Lucie counties.
All of those counties were hit by Wilma’s Category 1 winds.
It was Wilmot’s first Category 1 landfall, and Florida is still recovering from the hurricane.
But Florida was also hit hard by Matthew, with severe damage in many of the surrounding counties, including Fort Myers, Lakeland, and Port St. Joe.
The storm dumped more than 20 inches of rain on Fort Myers.
The flooding in the surrounding area is already impacting businesses.
The National Weather Service predicted the flooding would cause “a significant impact” in the area for weeks.
So what are the possible long-term impacts of Wilma?
According to the National Weather Services, Florida’s coastal areas could be inundated for at least another year.
The U.N. has warned that some areas could lose their homes as much as two feet.
That could make Florida’s already-fragile coastal ecosystem even more fragile, which could further undermine the recovery efforts.
Florida could also experience a decrease in tourism.
The tourism industry in Florida is worth around $2.6 billion, and many people who have been in Florida for many years have relocated because of the damage to their home and property.
And that may be why Florida has been a hot spot for tourists.
That means that Florida could lose its tourism industry, and that could be a devastating blow to Florida’s economy.
But it is not the only problem that Wilmots impact on Floridians could have.
A storm surge is another problem that could impact Florida’s tourism industry.
The surge is caused by rising sea levels and increased storm surge.
When storm surge reaches 10 feet or higher, the water can rise as high as 3 feet, which can create problems for people and property in coastal areas.
This surge also makes storm surge possible in areas where people live in low-lying areas, such as in coastal towns.
The coastal communities are already vulnerable to flooding from Hurricane Matthew.
And Wilma could increase storm surge and flooding in coastal communities further, because of its storm surge potential.
But there are other factors that could make it even worse for Florida.
Wilmot has a storm track that is similar to Matthew, which makes it a much more dangerous storm for the state.
The Florida Atlantic hurricane center says that Wilmetts track is similar in some respects to the one Matthew had.
But because of this, Wilmot could bring more storms to Florida than Matthew could bring.
The Atlantic hurricane system can bring tropical storm or tropical storm-force winds in Florida, which would be more destructive for the Florida coastline.
In the event of a Wilmot landfall, there could be much higher storm surge in Florida and a much higher risk of flooding in Florida than if Wilmot had been a Category 3 or 4 storm.
Florida may not recover from Wilmot.
And, while Wilmotte did cause some damage in Florida in 2017, it did not have as devastating of a toll on the state’s economy as Matthew.
It could take many years for Florida to recover from this storm, but that is no reason not to be thankful for the hurricane’s devastation.
