Just thought it would make sense to take a look at some strong storms that have similar origins and appear to be capable of similar levels of impact. Kindly review the information and videos below about Hurricane Joaquin, Hurricane Andrew and Hurricane Katrina.

Hurricane Katrina, the 2005 storm was similar to Hurricane Joaquin and I say this because it was one of the most devastating storms in the last decade. Ironically, its path is not very different from that of Joaquin.

Remembering Hurricane Katrina:

Hurricane Andrew

Hurricane Andrew imprinted itself in our hearts and minds in 1992. It is already 23 years later. Similar to Hurricane Joaquin, Andrew was also a category 4 Hurricane for sometime before it eventually intensified into a category 5 hurricane. Andrew’s winds were up to 175 mph.
