Nearly 40 hurricanes have caused more than $1 billion in damages in the U.S. since 1900. Here's a look at the worst of the worst.

All data is from the National Hurricane Center. Numbers from 1900-2017 are taken from the NHC's report on "The Deadliest, Costliest and Most Intense U.S. Tropical Cyclones." Data from the 2018 hurricane season, which includes Hurricane Michael, were taken from separate reports by the agency.

All damage numbers are adjusted for inflation to 2017 USD. Reported deaths are for the U.S. only.
