    a grammar teacher

    The damage caused by the hurricane was the worst than had ever occurred in that state.
    This is an exercise which I have to correct. I know "than" isn't correct here. I want to know if the sentece is correct when I put "that" in place of than or not?

    You use 'than' when you compare one thing with another.
    'That' is correct.
