Just curious, but what constitutes a "Super Storm"? What makes it a super storm now, as opposed to when it was a hurricane?

Storms like Wilma in the future we need to avoid by leaving.
MIAMI - Gov. Jeb Bush took the blame Wednesday for frustrating delays at centers distributing supplies to victims of Hurricane Wilma, saying criticism of the Federal Emergency Management Agency was misdirected.
“Don’t blame FEMA. This is our responsibility,” Bush said at a news conference in Tallahassee with federal Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, who oversees the agency.
Many Floridians were still struggling to find food, water, ice and gas on the third day of recovery from Wilma, waiting in line for hours — sometimes in vain. Miami-Dade’s mayor called the distribution system flawed and said at least one relief site of 11 in his county ran out of supplies.

I just made it home from Cancun. I was there on vacation, (perfect timing huh). I had no idea the magnatued of what I was actually living through as was so many others. We were completely cut off from outside souces of information for 6 days so I'm trying to read up on all of it now.
