Hurricane Hermine made landfall in the Big Bend area of Florida in 2016. It came ashore with maximum sustained winds around 80 mph with a central pressure of 982 mph (Category 1). As I write this, the same region is staring at the very real possibility of a strong category two or major hurricane (Category 3 or higher) making landfall in the Wednesday-Thursday time frame this week.
