EarthSky: How rare are November hurricanes?

It’s been a tumultuous year for tropical storms in the Southeast, with three hurricanes (Gordon, Florence and Michael) hitting parts of the region this fall. But the hurricane season doesn’t officially end until the end of November, so there is at least the potential for another storm to develop (although we see nothing on the long-term forecasts, thankfully). EarthSky has an interesting discussion about November hurricanes and their potential for damage here.
