Sandy is a category one. Hurricane Katrina was larger, much larger. I've dealt with these things since 1969. I was on a US Navy destroyer coming back across the Atlantic Ocean, we ran into Hurricane Camille at category 5 storm. We almost capsized multiple times. That was in 1969. But, well, sandy isn't the largest one I've been through.
