The Strongest Hurricane

Two of the worst hurricanes in North America in recorded history hit almost the same place and in a span of two years. In 1926 and 1928 two huge storms hit south Florida, which was just beginning to develop at the time.

1926 – Miami Hurricane

372 people died as the Miami Hurricane crossed Florida into the Gulf of Mexico and then struck Alabama and Mississippi. The storm hit on September 18, 1926.

1928 – Okeechobee Hurricane

Ten times deadlier than the 1926 storm and striking on September 17 near West Palm Beach.
