Question of the Day: Hurricane Frequency in New England
July 8, 2008
How often do we get hurricanes of each category in Maine and New Hampshire?
The National Hurricane Center estimates "return periods" for the various categories of hurricanes for locations along the east and gulf coasts. In this determination, the likelihood of the center of a hurricane passing within 75 miles of a location is estimated. However, because Northern New England does not have many strong hurricanes, it is difficult to determine the frequency of the stronger hurricanes.
