As many hurricanes follow the curve around the Bermuda High Pressure system, they often affect North Carolina. Since we jut out into the Atlantic, we have more hurricanes than most any other East Coast state. We rank 4th in the nation for hurricane strikes with Florida, Texas, and Louisiana having more than us. - Phillip Williams
