In some Gulf Coast towns, the damage caused by high winds and the storm surge went less noticed.

The positions of landmasses after the breakup of Gondwana during the late Mesozoic and early Paleogene are highly debated, especially the configurations of the Indian and Australian plates around the newly opening Indian Ocean.
