Despite an Holy City’s location being in the open sea, it will not necessarily be “prone” to frequent hurricane strikes as factual analysis reveal. Based on historical records of the paths of past hurricanes (in recorded history- as early as 1849) and the projected locations of the initial
HC’s, they should not be at anymore more risk than coastal cities or towns, or populated islands located in areas of frequently occuring Hurricanes/Typhoons/Cyclones.
A listing, based on past data, of major storms (i.e, Tropical Depressions and Storms, Hurricanes/Typhoons/Cyclones) that would have affected an HC has been prepared on this page. It only includes up to the 50 closest major storms that could physically reach an HC’s city limits. Thus the (possibly) maximum average diameter size of a major storm of
[nautical] miles) is used here. This means that for a major storm to affect at least the area just outside of an HC's outer city limits, i.e., about
( nau. miles)
from its city center, the center of a cyclonic storm, it's “eye”, would have to be
( miles) or less (storm’s radius+HC's city
limit+ nau. mile
buffer zone), to an HC’s outer city limit.
Furthermore, as the most devastating region of an hurricane are concentrated within in the area surrounding the “eye” of the storm- the "eye wall" which have an average diameter of
it could be said that for a major storm to seriously affect an HC (i.e, a direct “hit”), its eye (and surrounding eyewall) would have to come within
( miles) of an HC outer city limits. (“Rainbands” makeup the outer area of hurricanes, and are generally, relatively, not destructive.) This, in the majority of cases, would reduce the hurricane risk factor of an HC considerably as the following tables showing the totals of (would-have-been) "(direct) hits" vs. "brushes" (and "total major storms") show.
