Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Hurricanes or what is left of them come here pushed by throughs, so rotation doesn't count, what counts is surviving the transition to colder zones: hurricanes are driven by evaporation thus cold seas kill them, and strong high-altitude winds blowing over them kill the vertical convection that makes them work. So while the remains of a lot of Atlantic hurricanes reach the region between Iceland and Ireland, almost all do so transformed to an extratropical cyclone (which is driven by frontal systems).
