Tracks of hurricanes over Florida from 1950 to 1974

The list of Florida hurricanes from 1950 to 1974 encompasses 85 Atlantic tropical or subtropical cyclones that affected the U.S. state of Florida. Collectively, tropical cyclones in Florida during the time period resulted in about $6.2 billion (2008 USD) in damage, primarily from Hurricanes Donna and Dora. Additionally, tropical cyclones in Florida were directly responsible for 93 fatalities during the period, as well as responsible for 23 indirect deaths. Several tropical cyclones produced over 20 inches (500 mm) of rainfall in the state, including Hurricane Easy which is the highest total during the time period. The 1969 season was the year with the most tropical cyclones affecting the state, with a total of 8 systems. The 1954 and 1967 seasons were the only years during the time period in which a storm did not affect the state.

The strongest hurricane to hit the state during the time period was Hurricane Donna, which was the 8th strongest hurricane on record to strike the United States.[1] Additionally, Hurricanes Easy, King, Isbell, and Betsy hit the state as major hurricanes.

1950–1959[edit]

Hurricane Easy Rainfall
  • August 31, 1950– Hurricane Baker strikes near Mobile, Alabama, with the eastern half of its circulation producing moderate damage from strong winds and two tornadoes across the Florida Panhandle. Heavy rainfall and winds also led to some crop damage.[2]
  • September 5, 1950– Hurricane Easy moves ashore near Cedar Key and later near Tampa Bay as a major hurricane after looping offshore. The hurricane causes locally heavy damage in a sparsely populated area, totaling $3.3 million (1950 USD, $29.5 million 2008 USD). Due to its erratic motion,[2] Easy drops heavy rainfall peaking at 38.7 inches (983 mm) in Yankeetown,[3] which in turn causes 2 indirect deaths from electrocution.[2]
  • October 18, 1950– Hurricane King makes landfall on Miami as a major hurricane. Its hurricane force winds blows out the windows of many buildings in downtown Miami, resulting in several injuries. Across the state, the storm causes 3 deaths and heavy damage totaling $27.8 million (1950 USD, $249 million 2008 USD), of which over half occurred in the Miami area.[2]
  • October 21, 1950– The threat of Hurricane Love results in hurricane evacuations along the western coastline,[4] though dry air in the storm leads to very little effects after it hits near the mouth of the Steinhatchee River.[5]
  • May 18, 1951– The outer rainbands of Hurricane Able produce light rainfall and high seas along the eastern coastline.[6]
  • October 2, 1951– Hurricane How hits Fort Myers, and produces flooding rains and winds of up to 60 miles per hour (97 km/h). The storm results in $2 million in damage (1951 USD, $17 million 2008 USD), which is the only reported damage in the United States during the year.[7]
  • February 3, 1952– An off-season tropical storm unofficially named the Groundhog Day Tropical Storm hits near Cape Sable, producing gusty winds and moderate rainfall.[8]
