Hurricanes have been keeping away from Florida as the state enjoys a record seventh year without being struck by one. Meanwhile, other more rarely hit locales, such as New York and the Azores,  have seen an increase in storms.

ORLANDO, FL (Catholic Online) - The end of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season comes to a close today with Florida escaping the storms for a seventh year in a row. This despite the fact that it was one of the busiest seasons in history with 19 named storms and 10 hurricanes.

Researchers say it seems to be luck, more than anything else, that's protecting the state.

The storms have been forming early and steering north sooner than normal, however there is no discernible reason, at this time, on which to credit the development.

Unfortunately, there is no reason to expect the record will hold either. Florida will be struck again, but the respite is appreciated.
