"Catergory" 5 is not the only level which produces enormous devastation upon landfall. The Galveston hurricane of 1900 was only a category 4 upon landfall. It's considered the most deadly hurricane in US history, and the third-most deadly Atlantic hurricane in recorded history. And that's just talking about deaths on the US mainland, which--as pointed out--is leaving out quite a lot of hurricane country.
