Remember that wind speed is not the only signif facor in determining surge - more water and waves are pushed up by long fetches over open water and how fast it piles up against a coastline depends critically on the slope of the beach underwater and the shape of the shoreline
Katrina was particularly bad because lots of water was pushed w by the winds n of the storm into a nice v shaped area above the MIss river delta and s of the Ala'Miss/La gulf coast
