Top 10 Most Disastrous Hurricanes In the U.S.

The Top Ten Most Disastrous Hurricanes In the U.S.

1 Hurricane Katrina (2005)

This has gotta b #1... think of all the damage and all of the aftermath - gase456

The only tropical cyclone in world history to cause more than $100B and more than 1,000 deaths

People said Irma is better but is not but Katrina did more damage

2 Hurricane Andrew (1992)
3 Hurricane Maria (2017)

In my opinion this is WAY WAY worse than katrina because even know katrina did the most damage (sike it was harvey) on an island 100 billion dollars! an worse landslides occured and almost 3000 died prayers for puerto rico and all puerto rico got demolished.

This is the true Katrina of the decade, all of Puerto Rico got hit and lost power, floods occurred and trees and buildings were damaged, and lot of people are dying, and it is just unbelievable what would happen.

Almost as bad damage as Katrina, but WAY more deaths! You can replace a house but not a human life. This is why this is first.

Puerto Rico technically IS U.S. territory so yes, Hurricane Maria DOES count as a U.S. hurricane!

4 Hurricane Harvey (2017)

My comments are the two that relate to each other. Now harvey has gone down to 125 billion dollars, as much as Katrina, making them both the costliest tropical cyclones ever.

My other comment is in the top. What I meant to say was did you know that new research ( not so new anymore) says that Harvey caused 196 BILLION dollars. Exude my past grammar

Did you know new erase arch says its 186 BILLION dollars! That's almost double of katrina

Harvey was the Katrina of 2017.

5 Hurricane Sandy (2012)

Having gone through the whole week this monster crash-coursed right into my state, this thing was insane. Easily knocked out my power, tons of homes flooded, and funny enough, it was actually the biggest ever tropical cyclone in the Atlantic.

It hit Seaside Heights and Toms River NJ, where my uncle lives. Thank goodness he was OK.

6 Hurricane Irma (2017)

I'm just staring at the pictures of this hurricane as it is nearing Florida and I'm just like; "that is the HUGEST hurricane (how many miles wide/in diameter) I've ever seen out of ALL of the pictured hurricanes EVER. It is a bit bigger than the state of TEXAS."

Just hit Florida today. My aunt and her son which live in Miami are staying and my second cousin and his mom and dad are in Tampa and are staying! I am praying for them

Its coming for us

It was the largest storm in the Atlantic - Randomator

7 Hurricane Matthew (2016)
8 Hurricane Ike (2008)

This hurricane bashed into my city of Houston at nighttime head on, there sounded as if there were tornadoes everywhere, and (as always throughout history of humans) go crazy with, "oh no! The world is ending! " Crap. Just as it is with hurricane Harvey right now. I'm having to work during it. And during Ike, I'm just sitting in my candlelight room very calmly writing stories of terror.

9 Hurricane Camille (1969)
10 Galveston Hurricane (1900)

This is sad because not only was it a huge hurricane but it was 1900 so people could not prepare in advance

Deadliest Hurricane in us history 8,000-12,000 people dead

Much worse than Sandy
