Hurricane Rita hit South Florida and the Florida Keys as a Category 2 storm on September 20, 2005, just weeks after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. As it moved away from Florida, Rita became Category 5. After weakening, Rita came ashore again September 24, 2005, near Port Arthur, Texas, as a Category 3.
By comparison, Rita was a much weaker storm than Hurricane Katrina.
You survived hurricane Rita?? That's nothing! I survived hurricane Katrina!!
