Case Study: Hurricane Katrina
Hurricane Katrina, which struck the southern United States of America in August 2005, was the costliest natural disaster in America's history. Among Atlantic hurricanes it was the sixth strongest ever recorded, and one of the five deadliest. A hurricane is a tropical depression with winds of 74 miles per hour or higher. Once a tropical storm has winds reaching 39 miles per hour it is given a name. The storms are given names to help identify them for the warning services, and to reduce confusion when there are two or more hurricanes in the ocean at the same time. Once a storm like Katrina has caused substantial damage or death, the name is retired and not used again. This case study investigates Hurricane Katrina and the damage it caused.
