There have been some destructive hurricanes since 2000. Could Harvey top them?

Hurricane Harvey could be on par with 2005’s Hurricane Katrina in terms of economic impact, according to University of Miami senior hurricane researcher Brian McNoldy. “The Houston area and Corpus Christi are going to be a mess for a long time,” he said Friday. KATRINA: Katrina crossed the tip of Florida and then swept into the Gulf of Mexico and over Louisiana and Mississippi, causing more than 1,800 deaths and an estimated $108 billion in damage and becoming the costliest hurricane in U.S. history, according to the National Hurricane Center.
