Hi:
Low:

Hurricanes are Rare in St. Lucia


Many people are afraid to own Real Estate in the Caribbean, and rightly so, because of Hurricanes. You can invest a lot of money into a new home, to have it knocked over before you even get to live in it. Luckily, St. Lucia does not pose this sort of threat, and in fact, has equivalent activity to that of the northeastern United States!


Since 1850, only 14 hurricanes have passed within 60 nm (69miles) of the island. Of those, only one has been a category 3, one a category 4 and none have been category 5! Until the category 1 system of hurricane Dean, in 2007, a hurricane hadn’t passed by the island since 1980. This is detailed in a graphic chart from the Caribbean Hurricane Network.


This record is not just luck, but actually based on the island’s location to the hurricane belt. St. Lucia’s southeastern Caribbean setting puts it south of the normal track of hurricanes that gain strength over open waters on their way up to the northern Caribbean islands, southeastern United States, and Eastern Mexico. The islands easterly location also insures that most hurricanes don’t have enough time over open water to build strength in their destructive wind forces. This is why almost every hurricane to hit the island is category 1 or 2.


Buildings and infrastructure throughout the island are quite modernized and, being a Caribbean island, don’t take any chances. St. Lucia is designed and constructed for serious hurricane conditions, so low category storms do minimal damage, and generally don’t create any serious aftereffects.
