Re: Global warming
Katrina wasn't just a Cat 5 hurricane. In fact, the only reason that it was a Cat 5 was that it ran through a good deal of shallow water that reduced its power. While it was on the ocean it was apparently classified as a low-level hypercane, with wind speeds of about 300 mph.

Re: Global warming
Like I said, the shallow water slowed it down. The speed on the open ocean approached 300 mph. I'll try to find my source.
