Acording to the strict definition of a hurricane, no. Hurricanes move off the coast of Africa or the mid-Atlantic, and move easterly in the equatorial wind belt. They either reach the coast of North America or veer north into the Northern Atlantic, but in either case, their wind speeds drop and they downgrade into what is called a "tropical storm." The northern states and the eastern Canadian provinces are frequent targets of such tropical storms, but the likelihood of their crossing the Atlantic on the Westerlies is remote. This is not to say that Western Europe cannot be visited by extremely violent storms. However, these storms are not tropical in origin; they result from intense low pressure areas which have their origin in the Northern Atlantic regions and are carried westward to Europe by the Westerly wind belt.
