Hurricane Floyd is the third most intense hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean not to reach Category 5 intensity, behind only Hurricanes Opal and Gloria, as well as one of the most powerful tropical cyclones ever observed. At one time, when at its peak, tropical storm-force winds spanned a diameter of 580 mi (930 km), making Floyd one of the largest Atlantic hurricanes of its intensity ever recorded. With damages totaling up to $4.5 billion (1999 USD), Hurricane Floyd was one of the costliest Atlantic tropical cyclones ever recorded at the end of 2008.

Famous quotes containing the word records:

    What a wonderful faculty is memory!—the most mysterious and inexplicable in the great riddle of life; that plastic tablet on which the Almighty registers with unerring fidelity the records of being, making it the depository of all our words, thoughts and deeds—this faithful witness against us for good or evil.
    Susanna Moodie (1803–1885)

    It’s always the generals with the bloodiest records who are the first to shout what a hell it is. And it’s always the war widows who lead the Memorial Day parades.
    Paddy Chayefsky (1923–1981)

    In America, the photographer is not simply the person who records the past, but the one who invents it.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)
