According to NOAA, since records began in 1851:

-- Three hurricanes, or 1.09 percent, were "catastrophic" Category 5s (winds of 157 mph or higher). These include Andrew (Florida) in August 1992; Camille (Louisiana and Mississippi) in August 1969; and an unnamed Labor Day storm in Florida in September 1935.

-- Eighteen (6.56 percent) of the direct-landfall hurricanes were Category 4 (130-156 mph winds), which also produce catastrophic damage. The most recent Category 4 storm was Charley (Florida) in August 2004; and Hugo (South Carolina) in September 1989, which came a full 27 years after the last Category 4 storm (Hurricane Carla in Texas) in September 1961.

-- Seventy-three (26.64 percent) of the 274 direct-landfall hurricanes were "devastating" Category 3 storms (111-129 mph winds). The most recent of these was Wilma, which hit Florida 12 years ago in October 2005. Including Wilma, there were a total of six Category 3 hurricanes in 2004-2005, including Katrina, which devastated New Orleans; Rita, which flooded central Texas; Dennis (Florida), Jeanne (Florida) and Ivan (Alabama-Florida).

-- Seventy-five of the 274 direct-landfall hurricanes (27.37 percent) were "extremely dangerous" Category 2 storms (96-110 mph winds).

-- And 105 (38.32 percent) since 1851 were "very dangerous" Category 1 hurricanes (74-95 mph winds).

That has been shown many times. The fact that your brain is a fact-free zone really should bother you.

Go here (https://www.skepticalscience.com/glo...termediate.htm) and first read the Basic, then when you have digested that and the links contained within go to Intermediate and follow suit. Then go to Advanced and repeat.

There was never a 97%, never. Never. That was a made up lie by some bozo down under, which all you LWNJ's still drool over in your hopes of ever bigger, more powerful government.
Thanks from Jimgorn

Despite the difficulty in defining a precise number and the opinion that the exact number is not important, 97% continues to be widely publicized and defended. One might ask why 97% is important. Perhaps it’s because 97% has marketing value. It sounds precise and says that only 3% disagree. By implication, that small number who disagree must be out of the mainstream: cranks, chronic naysayers, or shills of the fossil fuel industry. They are frequently described as a “tiny minority.” It’s not as easy to discount dissenters if the number is 10 or 15 percent.

I bet not. It has things like facts and hard data and other stuff that won't fit in that furry little pea-sized organ you call a brain.
