Sometimes, a powerful hurricane can have multiple landfalls in the same country. Hurricane Donna is a classic example. The powerful Category 4 storm slammed into the Florida Keys on September 10 of 1960. Wind gusts topped 130 mph, and torrential rain spread across the state.
After pushing back into the Atlantic, the storm made another landfall in North Carolina as a Category 2 storm. Significant damage occurred from Topsail Beach all the way to Nags Head.
But Donna still had one final landfall in store. On September 12, the storm pushed ashore near Westhampton, New York. Hurricane-force winds occurred, along with flooding rain. Thankfully, few hurricanes have the strength and longevity of Donna.
