Jacksonville, Fl —

The 2016 Atlantic hurricane season will be remembered in NE Florida for the damage that Matthew left behind

But our area saw impacts from Colin, Julia, and Hermine.  

Matthew was the costliest storm in NE Florida, and up the coast into the Carolinas.

Action News Jax Chief Meteorologist Mike Buresh says, despite our close brush with disaster, many people living inland may grow complacent because they didn't see any damage.


Hermine ended Florida’s 11-year hurricane-free streak when it made landfall in the Big Bend in September.  

Tropical Storm Colin spun up a tornado on Jacksonville's westside in June

The 2016 Atlantic hurricane season will go down as one of the longest on record.  Hurricane Alex formed in January deep in the north Atlantic Ocean.  Hurricane Otto in late November became the latest storm ever to form in the Caribbean.
