Anyone ever track hurricanes. Wonder if any casino's give any action on those...

I am in no way related to this website, I just use it from time to time to get an idea of whats going on in the hurricane realm:

Looks like we may have a hurricane on the east coast next week, or maybe nothing, who's to say XD.

The biggest storms hit late in the season and the season runs till the end of October.

Is there betting on storms (number of named storms, for example) anywhere?

Political betting is barred in Nevada.

Edited to add:

And a quick Google search found this....

Ever since I moved to Florida last year, I definitely keep an "eye" out for them. This is my first hurricane season here and it has been unusually mild from what I have read.

My wife is the nervous type and will want to run anytime a storm heads in our direction. I am just the opposite and would rather hunker down and ride it out. She will win, she always does.

Yes, so far, this is a mild season as compared to the last several years, and versus what was predicted by the experts. September is typically the worst month for hurricanes, and we are halfway through. Not to say that big storms don't happen after Oct 1 (see 2005), but the bulk come in late August through the end of September.

The tracking has gotten such that the 3-day cone is pretty accurate (The storm track will almost always lie within the cone). The 5-day cone is a little less accurate, but still fairly reliable. Beyond that, it's hit or miss.

SW FL rarely gets the brunt of a powerful storm, but does experience flooding sometimes. If you are in a sturdy house and not in a flood zone, you are probably good to ride just about anything out.

Surprisingly the city where I live is known for flooding because the city has hundreds of miles of canals through it. My house is not in a flood zone but I am not sure why it isn't. Although I don't live on a canal, all of the house across the street from me are on a canal. Fortunately, by not being listed as a flood zone I save about $3500 a year on flood insurance.

So your house isn't listed in a flood zone and you save $3,500 a year on flood insurance. Great. But if your house IS flooded, which doesn't sound like a such remote possibility given its close proximity to flood zone properties, you're screwed. Have you worked out the probabilities and cost/benefit on this?

Whomever is tracking hurricanes they really need to contact EvenBob and get his pattern recognition formula.

Since I am not in a flood zone my homeowners policy will cover anything beyond the $10,000 deductible.

Please check the language in your policy. Many if not most homeowners policies do not cover "flood" damage. They may cover "water" damage from, say, a busted pipe, or rain that DIRECTLY damages a house (for example from a hurricane), but not from damage that occurs as the result of waters from rising rivers or the ocean, including inland canals. Because your house is so close to a water source, if it's severely damaged or totally destroyed from a hurricane you might find yourself in an argument with your insurance carrier over the the question of whether the loss was from the winds and rain of the storm (a covered event) or the rising waters (a non covered event).
