86. We had 2 more storms that rivaled Katrina in 2005
Rita and Wilma were just as strong, and at some points stronger, than Katrina was, but those didn't cause the water damage that Katrina did and so you don't hear much about them. There are still peeople in SE Texas and SW Louisiana whose houses have not been repaired from Rita, who have since been hit by Humberto and Eduoard, and could now also be facing a hit by Gustav, since they keep shifting the damn cone further to the west.

I wish people would remember that NOLA isn't the only city still recovering from 2005.
