Ivan the terrible? Gulf storm forgotten by many

GULF SHORES, Ala. (AP) - It hit the rare Category 5 status three times.

It killed nearly 100 people. With damages of more than $14 billion, it is still the fifth costliest hurricane in U.S. history.

Yet as its fifth anniversary arrives Wednesday, many who survived its devastation say they feel it is now America's "forgotten hurricane." The widespread loss of life and property -- from the Caribbean to points across the Southeast -- were eclipsed the next year by Hurricane Katrina.
