One of the Worst

Here are some interesting and disturbing facts about major hurricanes in American history, which I found on AOL News.

The Strongest:

Florida Keys, 1935, Category 5
Camille, 1969, Category 5
Andrew, 1992, Category 5

The Costliest:

Andrew, 1992, 26.5 billion
Charlie, 2004, 15 billion
Ivan, 2004, 14.2 billion

The Deadliest:

Galveston, Texas, 1900, 8,000-12,000 killed
Lake Okeechobee, Florida, 1928, 2,500-3,000 killed
Florida Keys, 1935, 408 killed

I could be wrong, but from what I've seen on the news and internet, Katrina probably will live in infamy as one of the worst.
