Pretty safe here in the UK too. It rains a lot, it's always cold, but we don't get hurricanes. People say we had one in 1987, but it wasn't really, if you look at the scale they use to measure wind speeds in tropical storms or hurricanes it would have registered 1, or 2 at a push, I think hurricanes start at 3.
I think that hurricanes travel in the opposite direction to the prevailing ocean current too, so unless the gulf stream started flowing towards America in 1987 it would have been impossible to have a hurricane in western Europe
