Hurricane Shary was the most catastrophic hurricane of all time. Causing winds over 200 mph and causing an estimated 340 trillion jackpots in damage. It was so bad that the mothers and the fathers were scrambling for their childern! Oh yeah, and Shary picked them up, and threw them to China. Wow Shary, you're just so cruel, aren't you?
The start of a storm
Shary began as a tropical wave south of the Cape-Verde islands moving north. The wave formed into a Tropical Depression and rapidly intensified into Tropical Storm Shary on that same day. Shary then intensified into a hurricane and rapidly gained strength. Shary on August 24, had its peak winds up to 230 mph making it a Category 6 hurricane. Shary made its first landfall in the Yucatan as a category 6 monster and caused a storm surge of 53 feet. Shary then hit Veracruz and crossed into the Pacific Ocean as a category 5 storm. Shary then looped into the Gulf as a category 1 and rapidly gained strength back to a category 6 before striking New Orleans. Shary weakened a bit and made its 4th landfall at Florida as a category 4 hurricane and crossed Florida. Shary then strengthened into a category 6 for a third time over open waters and dissipated on September 4.
Damages from Shary
Most of Shary's damage was from the Yucatan and Mexico. Louisiana was badly damaged and Florida was horrible after Shary's path of destruction.
