Hurricane Michael making landfall in Florida near Mexico Beach as a Category 5 hurricane on October 10, 2018

The list of Florida hurricanes from 2000 to the present has been marked by several devastating North Atlantic hurricanes; as of 2021, 79 tropical or subtropical cyclones, their remnants, or their precursors have affected the U.S. state of Florida. Collectively, cyclones in Florida during the time period resulted in more than $123 billion in damage and 339 deaths. Eleven cyclones affected the state in 2019, which was the year with the most tropical cyclones affecting the state. Every year included at least one tropical cyclone affecting the state. During the 2004 season, more than one out of every five houses in the state received damage.[1] After Wilma in 2005, it would be 11 years until another hurricane would strike the state, and 12 years until another major hurricane would strike the state.

The strongest hurricane to hit the state during the time period was Hurricane Michael, which was a Category 5 on the Saffir-Simpson scale, the highest category on the scale. Michael was the strongest hurricane to strike the contiguous United States since Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Additionally, hurricanes Charley, Jeanne, Dennis, Wilma, and Irma made landfall on the state as major hurricanes.

2000[edit]

  • August 23 – Hurricane Debby was forecasted to move through the Florida Keys as a hurricane, which prompted a mandatory evacuation for all non-residents.[2] However, Debby dissipated before its remnant tropical wave, produced heavy rainfall and strong winds across southern Florida.[2]
  • September 18 – Tropical Storm Gordon makes landfall on Cedar Key, dropping up to 9.48 inches (240 mm) of rainfall in Mayo.[3] Hundreds of homes are damaged from floodwaters or fallen trees, and damage in the state amounts to at least $5.1 million (2000 USD).[4] A surfer drowns in rough seas near Pensacola.[5]
  • September 22 – Tropical Storm Helene hits near Pensacola, damaging hundreds of homes from floodwaters. Monetary damage totals over $1 million (2000 USD).[6]
  • October 3 – The precursor disturbance to Tropical Storm Leslie produces 10–20 inches (255–510 mm) of rainfall across southeastern Florida, flooding about 93,000 houses. The flooding causes $950 million in damage (2000 USD),[7] along with three indirect deaths.[8]

2001[edit]

Flood damage from Tropical Storm Gabrielle
  • June 12 – Tropical Storm Allison moves through Alabama and Georgia, with its outer rainbands producing up to 10.1 inches (357 mm) of rain at the Tallahassee Regional Airport.[9] The rainfall destroys 10 homes and damages 599 others,[10] with monetary damage totaling $20 million (2001 USD).[9] Eight people died in the state,[11] five of which due to rip currents.[12]

  • May 13–14 - The precursor of Tropical Storm Arthur produced heavy rainfall across southern Florida, which resulted in an injury in Hollywood when the rains caused a ceiling to collapse.[179]
  • May 25–27 - The precursor of Tropical Storm Bertha dropped heavy rainfall, with a 24-hour total of 7.4 in (190 mm) in Miami; this was more than double the previous daily rainfall record.[180] The rains flooded homes and roadways, especially in close proximity to canals.[181] The storm caused the planned Crew Dragon Demo-2 launch from Cape Canaveral to be canceled.[182]
  • June 6–7 – While moving northward through the Gulf of Mexico, Tropical Storm Cristobal spawned six tornadoes in Florida, including an EF1 near Orlando that damaged 42 homes and buildings.[183][184]
  • July 6 - The precursor low to Tropical Storm Fay moved ashore the Florida gulf coast, later developing into a tropical storm off the east coast of the United States.[185]
  • July 22 - Rip currents from Hurricane Hanna killed a swimmer in Sandestin Beach along the gulf coast.[186]
  • August 1–3 - Tropical Storm Isaias paralleled the east coast of Florida, dropping heavy rainfall of rainfall and causing power outages to about 3,000 people in South Florida. Although the NHC issued hurricane warnings, the core of the storm remained offshore, and the peak wind gusts were 58 mph (93 km/h) in Dania Beach.[187]
  • August 23–24 - Hurricane Marco dropped heavy rainfall on the Florida Panhandle, reaching 11.81 in (300 mm) in Apalachicola, causing some flooding.[188]
  • August 26 - A strong squall from Tropical Storm Laura bought strong, gusty winds to Key West, causing sporadic damage. High surf and rip currents from the storm also caused a first responder to drown in St. George Island while trying to save two other swimmers.[189]
  • September 10–15 – Hurricane Sally slowly moved ashore southern Alabama, producing peak wind gusts of 92 mph (148 km/h) in Pensacola. The city also recorded a 5.6 ft (1.7 m) storm surge, which was the third-highest water level there after Hurricane Ivan in 2004 and the 1926 Miami hurricane. Sally dropped torrential rainfall across where it moved ashore, reaching 22.5 in (570 mm) near Pensacola. The rains and the storm surge caused significant flooding, resulting in hundreds of rescues. The storm damaged or destroyed thousands of structures. Three people died in Florida related to Sally, two due to drowning and one related to carbon monoxide poisoning while using a generator indoors.[190] Damage in Escambia County alone totaled $309 million.[191]
  • October 4 - Rainbands from Tropical Storm Gamma near Mexico's Yucatán peninsula also produced rainfall in Florida.[192]
  • October 10 - Rip currents from Hurricane Delta killed two swimmers along the gulf coast.[193]
