Hurricane Harvey

Unfortunately, Hurricane Harvey is one of the most devastating Category 4 hurricanes that occurred in Texas, Louisiana and other parts of the United States, causing monstrous devastation, affecting our lives in so many ways. Hurricane Harvey was responsible for causing the deaths of more than 82 people, and the total damage was estimated at $125 billion. 

Harvey is the first major hurricane of the extremely active 2017 Atlantic hurricane season, initially being just a tropical wave, but became a hurricane a few days later.

Hurricane Katrina

  • Year: 2005
  • Damage: $125 billion
  • Intensity: Category 5
  • Places affected: Louisiana, Mississippi, The Bahamas, United States Gulf Coast, South Florida, Northeast, Eastern Canada

Well, you don’t have to live in America to know about Hurricane Katrina, especially since there are people around the world who learn in school about the most destructive hurricane of all time that almost wiped our country off the world map. Honestly, if you haven’t heard of this hurricane before, it means that you should read and improve your knowledge a little more.

That being said, Hurricane Katrina was a huge Category 5 Atlantic hurricane that killed at least 2,000 people and $125 billion in damage in August 2005. Katrina was the costliest hurricane at that time (now being tied with Hurricane Harvey that occurred in 2017).
