2004 Hurricane Season: Five years Later

Hurricane CharleyIt has been five years since the record-setting 2004 Atlantic Hurricane Season brought Floridians four hurricanes in just 44 days. Hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne will forever live in the minds of Florida’s residents and visitors as some of the most destructive and dangerous storms to ever hit the United States. Today, however, we can reflect on the incredible progress made over the last five years by our communities, in cooperation with local, state and federal government partners.  As a result of this strong partnership, Florida is better prepared to withstand future disasters.
