Hurricane Wilma won a place in the record books when the storm's central pressure dropped to 26.02 inches over the western Caribbean. Late on Oct. 23, the storm made landfall in South Florida as a Category 3 hurricane with 120-mph winds. The damage to South Florida was just over $20 billion (2005 USD).
Interestingly enough, Tropical Storm Richard is now located in about the same place that Hurricane Wilma was in October 2005. Know for a fact, however, that Richard will never become as powerful as Wilma did.
