Hurricane season is from June 1st through November 30th. In the coastal states of the eastern portion of the USA, hurricanes represent a significant danger for RVs. Hurricanes can hit almost anywhere from Texas to Massachusetts. Look at the hurricane tracks for over the last 150 years.

As you can see hurricanes can strike anywhere. It might make sense to look at a shorter period of time like the last 20 years.

Over the last 20 years, hurricanes have impacted all of the states from Texas to Massachusetts. Having grown up and lived most of my life in Florida has seen many of these hurricanes. For example, Hurricane Katrina crossed Florida before strengthening and making landfall near New Orleans. Even the hurricane tracks for the last 10 years show that you need to be prepared anywhere in the coastal states.
