Interesting Comparison?

Not sure how strong this hurricane was. Same number of people were displaced -- about a million.

Ah, here's a Bloomberg report from 9/1:

100 mph wind gusts; 78 mph sustained at the eyewall. That's a category 1, if you rate it by sustained winds, and not gusts. I'm not sure which counts; I think it's a "one-minute average" measurement, according to the National Weather Service. So, either a category 1 or a category 2.
