WeatherNation spoke with Dr. Phil Klotzbach, research scientist and meteorologist with Colorado State University about past hurricanes to impact Florida's east coast. Dr. Klotzbach is best know for leading the season hurricane outlooks from the Department of Atmospheric Science with CSU. We spoke with Dr. Klotzbach on Friday for perspective on Dorian as it threatens a Florida landfall. https://youtu.be/B8b63WZlenA Recent hurricanes to make landfall on the east coast of Florida include Hurricane Jeanne (2004), Hurricane Frances (2004), and Hurricane Andrew (1992). Andrew was the strongest storm to hit the east coast, making landfall near Homestead as a category 5. If Dorian makes landfall as a category 4, it would be the strongest storm to hit Florida's east coast directly since 1992.
