HURRICANE SANDY is the WORST DISASTER in the HISTORY of the UNITED STATES!
OTHER MAJOR NATURAL DISASTERS IN THE U.S.

Tri-State Tornado - March 18, 1925

Over the span of three-and-a-half destructive hours, the Tri-State Tornado became the deadliest twister to rip through the heartland. Along its path which included Illinois, Indiana, Missouri the tornado demolished more than 15,000 homes. Of the nearly 700 people killed, 613 were from Illinois. In the aftermath, forecasters started to look into developing a tornado warning system that would have spared many lives at the time.

Peshtigo Fire - October 8, 1871

A lesser-known fire in Wisconsin that burned on the same day as the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 turned out to be the nation's deadliest. The drought-stricken city of Peshtigo was set afire when a strong windstorm fueled the spread of a small group of prairie fires by fanning the blaze out over a million acres of forest land. The wildfire even jumped across the Peshtigo River, trapping both sides of the town in flames. By the time the inferno subsided, it had scorched 12 towns and left roughly 1,200 dead.

Johnstown Flood - May 31, 1889

During the late 19th Century, the small industrial community of Johnstown in Pennsylvania earned a reputation as a producer of high-quality steel. All that progress was flushed away when the poorly maintained South Fork dam that stood high up in the mountains, 14 miles from the city, failed. Days of torrential downpour caused the dam to burst, unleashing more than 20 million tons of water and debris to crash down on the city with the force of Niagara Falls. The flood leveled 1,600 homes and killed 2,209 people.

Heat Wave of 1988 - Summer of 1988

A year-long drought that had ravaged the agricultural economy was further exacerbated by the heat wave of 1988. Damage to the agricultural economy surpassed $61 billion, as total rainfall along the Great Plains region from April through June was even lower than during the Dust Bowl years. Drought conditions seeded wildfires that raged across Yellowstone National Park and Mount Rushmore that summer. Between 5,000 and 10,000 people succumbed to health complications stemming from the sweltering heat.

It may be the most expensive. I doubt it'll have the most deaths.

I don't know about this being the worst, but I know it's going to cost a great big pile of money.

It's the worst disaster in media hype bullshit maybe. They are flat out lying about wind speeds. This storm is an epic failure.

I agree.
Sandy is bigger and more ferocious than Katrina, Atlantic City is already underwater, and we haven't yet seen Frankenstorm, which results from Sandy colliding with other weather systems.

The northeast is being scoured and it's really amazing to behold.

This is probably the single worst thread I've ever seen here. Certainly the worst title.

And that's saying....so much, considering this is a place Zetatalk-believers still post occassionally.

I mean....Sweet Mother of God, OP you DEBUNK YOURSELF with your initial post. You list multiple inicidents, some involving thousands of deaths, which I feel RATHER CONFIDENT will still end up having been much more "lethal" than this hurricane.

A hurricane which isn't even a hurricane anymore btw since it weakened BELOW category 1.

I mean seriously, OP, for you is rampant, wanton speculation and/or internet fear-mongering something so impulsive you just....CAN'T resist, regardless how flimsy your foundations are....?

....or....lol, regardless how badly you end up debunking....yourself in the process?

Sandy is a puppy compared to Hurricane Camille 1969 & Hurricane Katrina in 2005
Those were far more dangerous and disastrous
If those two would of hit where Sandy did they would of wiped them out!!
