Where are you located, "dude"? It was by far NOT the worst I've seen in my 54 years. I sat thru Bonnie near the eye and she was blowing 105-110 and she wasn't a bad storm. Damage and flooding "yes". Like Fla4life said, Andrew and Katrina were bad storms. Hugo was a bad storm. A Cat 1 can cause damage and fatalities and it is tragic but my point is that a Cat 3 or 4 would have been exponentially worse. Dude.

BTW, that pic you posted of Hwy 12 in Hatteras is mild compared to the numerous times it's been washed away before.
