INTRODUCTION:

In the early morning hours on August 29th, 2005, Hurricane Katrina made landfall on the Gulf Coast of United States. Initially, Katrina had a Category 3 rating according to the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale and with that came heavy winds that reached 100-140 miles per hour that spanned an area of 400 miles. Even though the storm itself inflicted severe damage, the aftermath was even more devastating. Levee breaches resulted in massive widespread flooding and many people accused the federal government of a slow response in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina. Nearly 2000 people lost their lives, hundreds of thousands of people in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama were displaced from their homes and damages caused by the storm were estimated to be more then $100 billion.
