    Yes. There have been a number of tropical storms and Super-typhoons that are bigger and have stronger winds than Hurricane Katrina did. A large number of tropical storms never actually reach land. The world record for the strongest storm is held by Super-typhoon Tip (1979) which had a barometric pressure that measured at 25.90 inches (870 mb). The record for the largest hurricane is Hurricane Wilma which had a barometric pressure of 26.06 inches. Average barometric pressures of tropical storms are around 28 inches and lower pressures mean a stronger storm. The winds in storms like Tip can reach speeds of up to 200 mph.
