Are there actually ever hurricanes that hit that region of Europe in the summer? Or is it kinda rare, like how hurricanes never hit California?

Remnants of hurricanes sometimes come our way but by the time they get here they aren't severe. We do get big storms here in the colder half of the year though, the winds can reach hurricane-like speeds as the storms make their way to the continent across the Atlantic. They aren't as bad as Katrina-type storms but it can get quite spooky still :)
