MIAMI — For the first time since 1994, the nation's Atlantic and Gulf coasts got through the hurricane season without being hit by one.

Two tropical storms--Gordon and Helene--hit Florida in September, causing about $26.8 million in damage but no deaths or injuries.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 through Nov. 30.

Overall, there were 14 named storms during the 2000 season: eight hurricanes and six tropical storms. The average is 10 named storms per year.
