The impact of storms is measured in lives and damage. Hurricanes are the worst since they involve a deadly combination of wind and water. The National Hurricane Service lists the major hurricanes on record to date. Among them are Camille, Betsy, Katrina and some earlier ones that were not named.

Storms strike everywhere every year. Among the worst have been the 1935 hurricane that struck the coast of the United States on Labor Day. 423 people were killed.
