How Hurricane Katrina Changed America's Disaster Preparedness Response Infrastructure
As we close National Preparedness Month, ORAU's team of experts look to the past to help map out the future of preparedness. They discuss Hurricane Katrina, which made landfall in Southeast Louisiana on August 29, 2005. The powerful Category 3 storm left 1,800 people dead, caused $100 billion in damage, and demonstrated that America was ill prepared to respond to a disaster of such magnitude. A lot has changed in the last 16 years. Our experts explain the changes, and how ORAU has remained involved in preparedness work.
