By comparison, the US is currently in a record-breaking hurricane drought, with the last category 4-5 hurricane at landfall in the US 22 years ago in 1992 [Andrew], and the last category 3 at landfall was 9 years ago in 2005 [Wilma].
In addition, Accumulated Cyclone Energy [ACE] is also at some of the lowest levels on record:
Scaremongering stories of increased frequency or intensity of hurricanes from CAGW are without observational basis. In addition, climate models project decreased frequency and intensity of hurricanes in the future, due to a decrease in temperature gradients between the tropics and poles.

Results for the years 1851-1898 include the omission of 62 of the 361 HURDAT2 storms, and the further reduction due to merging of storms to a total of 288 unique HURDAT 2 tropical cyclones. The new compilation gave a total of 497 tropical cyclones in the 48-year record, or an average of 10.4 storms year-1 compared to 6.0 year-1 in HURDAT2 less the author’s omissions. Of this total, 209 storms are completely new. A total of 90 hurricanes made landfall in the United States during this time. Seven new U.S. landfalling hurricanes are present in the new data set but not in HURDAT2. Eight U.S. landfalling hurricanes in HURDAT2 are now considered to have only tropical storm impact or were actually extratropical at landfall. Across the North Atlantic, the number of Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale Category 4 hurricanes, compared with HURDAT2, increased from 11 to 25, six of which made U.S. landfall at Category 4 level.
