LA Times Discovers Hurricanes Hit Florida... Every 12 Years!

http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-hurricane14may14,0,2802301.story?coll=la-home-nation

The below is a quote from the Saturday Los Angeles Times:

"... one of the main lessons learned last year was that Florida was not immune to hurricanes. Until then, the last hurricane to plow ashore had been Andrew in 1992."

No hurricane hit Florida between 1992 and 2004? Did I just read that correctly. Let us look again at that last phrase to see if that is what it really says:

"... the last hurricane to plow ashore had been Andrew in 1992."

Yup. That's what the LA Times said!

And you wonder why they felt thay had to hide the 'Corrections' section on the new website? Well, wonder no more.

Took me about 30 seconds on Google to find the 25 or so hurricanes that landed in Florida between (not counting) 1992 and 2004.
