In the history of hurricanes in the US there are 3 big names; Katrina, Andrew, and Camille. Of course there was the one that hit Galveston which is still the greatest natural disaster to ever hit the US, but I'm talking about the modern era of hurricane study with hunter planes and satellites. Think of all the advanced warning we have today. Even just 50-60 years ago the only reliable predictor was a rapidly falling barometer and maybe some ship reports. Camille was famous because her winds approached 200 MPH. She hit the same area that Katrina did. Hydrologically it was a fascinating storm because the remnants caused devastating floods in Virgina which killed just as many people, if not more, than were killed on the coast. Here is a government documentary that was made a few years after the storm. Yes, it's the same cheezy type of film that you watched when you were in grade school, but it does provide a good history of the storm.
The film contains 2 classic moments. 1 is a cow standing in the middle of a road as the storm rages and the other is the woman flipping out when she finds what's left of her house (at about 9:50). Yeah. It's 27 minutes long, so watch it when you have the time.
The other thing you'll take away from the film is that all of those places that were destroyed in '69 were leveled again in '05. People were actually cheering Tricky Dick when he visited the disaster area. I don't thing the same thing could have been said about Shrubya.
