What's the worst about Florida
These are the worst hurricanes ever
Heavy rains and storm surges, floods and damage in the millions - these are the consequences of violent hurricanes. Cyclone Dorian, which hit the northern Bahamas with full force, is no exception. We have summarized the most violent storms for you.
At a speed of up to 306 kilometers per hour, Hurricane “Camille” swirled not only Cuba, but also the US states of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana in August 1969 - the storm paralyzed all meteorological instruments when it reached the American mainland. The hurricane held a record until 2005: At a good seven meters, it caused the highest storm surge in the history of the United States. The hurricane killed 259 people and injured almost 9,000 people.
Hurricane "Allen" moved at a similarly rapid pace. In July and August 1980 he swept across Puerto Rico, Haiti, Jamaica and northern Mexico. Although the financial damage of 1.5 billion US dollars was lower than that of "Camille", there were almost as many deaths - 290 people died as a result of the hurricane.
Cyclone "Gilbert" was arguably one of the deadliest and most intense hurricanes since records began in the mid-19th century. With wind speeds of up to 295 kilometers per hour, it caused damage running into billions in almost nine days in September 1988. "Gilbert" claimed hundreds of lives - 202 in Mexico, 45 in Jamaica, 30 in Haiti, twelve in Guatemala and five in Venezuela.
