Hurricane Irene and its remnants raked the Caribbean, the eastern U.S. and Canada for more than a week a year ago. Though it never hit the U.S. as anything stronger than a minimal hurricane, it ranks among the costliest in history, causing more than $5.3 billion in damage, and killed at least 67 people in all.
