13. Hurricane Wilma
With a name beginning in ‘W’, you might suspect that Hurricane Wilma showed up late in the season. You’d be right. Just because Wilma was late to the party, however, didn’t stop the hurricane from wreaking severe havoc. In 2005, it took a mere five hours for Hurricane Willma to sweep across the Florida peninsula and claim 5 lives. Though the storm pass through Florida and weakened relatively quickly, there was still enough force behind Wilma to reach all the way to Nova Scotia.
