Florida hurricane season runs from June 1 through November 31. The dates indicate hurricane season for land that touches the Atlantic Ocean. The Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea are included in this time frame as well.

The most significant and violent hurricane in Florida history is the Labor Day Hurricane of 1935. The Hurricane ripped through the Florida Keys, a chain of islands located south of the Sunshine State’s mainland. Not only is this the most significant hurricane to hit the state of Florida, the Labor Day Hurricane of 1935 is considered the most devastating hurricane in history to strike the United States to date.
