Why is the media calling hurricane Irene "extremely deadly" when it's currently only a category 1 level?

is the media just hyping it up, or is Irene really super scary like the headlines are saying? I know hurricane Katrina’s disaster was mostly due to the levees breaking, but it was also a category 3 (I think) and that sounds much more “deadly” than something considered a “1.”

Of course any storm big enough to be considered a hurricane is very serious, but I’m still wondering if I should really be worried about friends that live in that area of the states.
