Florida, Hurricane Capital of the World?

No, not really. It looks like the western Pacific is closer to the mark on that one. Still tropical cyclones occur in MANY parts of the world as shown below:

Two typhoons in the Pacific in June. One had winds of 173 mph.

There is a lot of violent weather out there worldwide at some time or another, not just tropical cyclones either. Florida doesn't have a monopoly on hurricanes as I am sure most of us realize.
