Among natural disasters, hurricanes are one of the most formidable forces of nature, causing unparalleled devastation on coastal regions and communities throughout history. Each hurricane can tell a story of resilience, hardship, and lessons learned. In this article we will be discussing one of the most dangerous hurricanes of modern history- Hurricane Katrina.
Hurricane Katrina was a category 5 hurricane that struck the United States Gulf Coast in 2005. The hurricane made direct landfall over the city of New Orleans, but had a widespread in the Southeastern United States. The hurricane showed the failure of the levee system in New Orleans, which caused around 80% of the city to become flooded.
Hurricane Katrina exposed critical flaws in disaster management and emergency response systems in local, state and federal levels, which we have since learned from today. Major strides have been made to improve the nations’ hurricane preparedness, disaster response and infrastructure resilience.
