ABSTRACT
The article focuses on how the bankers of Florida and the Gulf Coast contend with one of the busiest hurricane seasons on record. In all, there were 15 named storms in 2004, nine minor hurricanes and six major hurricanes; and in a six-week span, four hurricanes hit both Florida coasts and the Panhandle, causing the deaths of 117 residents and $60 billion in damage. Climatologists say that Earth is entering a period of more hurricanes. which means 2004 may not be a fluke, but an indicator of things to come.
