Most of the hurricanes I remember 'hitting" the east coast actually ride up from the south.

I dont recall one hitting straight into land...this far north.

Occasionally they do. We have had quite a few hurricanes hit Long Island or Cape Cod first. They stream from the Atlantic, get caught in the jet stream and go up until they hit.
