Do some research, man. It's all over why this is a big deal.

The prolonged rains, prolonged winds, and prolonged storm surge have the potential to be devastating. Millions will be out of power for days. This is a massive, massive storm that is combining with another storm. It's going to be misery.

The category matters not. It would be just as bad if the storm came in as just a tropical storm.
