Hernando County is usually threatened by at least one storm forecast during the hurricane season. Often the storms are steered elsewhere, although it has been only two years since a weakened Irma directly hit this area. Last year the community came together to deliver supplies to Mexico Beach, Florida and surrounding communities impacted by Hurricane Michael. There were many local businesses and organizations that delivered needed supplies. The constant threat of being hit by a hurricane, leads residents of this area to feel a kinship with the victims of a hurricane.
