It was intense only because it hit between DC and NY..
If "Super Duper Storm" Sandy or Irene hit Florida...

Nobody talked about superstorm Leslie, another transitioning hurricane that hit Newfoundland earlier this year. There are hurricane superstorms every season, most blowing up in the Atlantic with a few hitting Europe. Most of the intense ones are farther north than DC or NY.

(Jim, please bill me 50 cents for this completely useless post)
Actually, it was a pretty big storm ~ not exactly between DC and NYC, but more like Cape Hattaras to Nova Scotia ~ so there were an awful lot of places in between to get damaged ~ particularly places that go decades between any kind of hurricane.
It was bigger than Texas!
