Description

Hurricane Katrina was a disaster, killing thousands, causing billions in damages and destroying countless homes. While the storm was strong, it was able to decimate Louisiana (especially New Orleans) only because hurricane protection systems across the city failed. The systems were built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Today, the rebuilt system is no longer considered hurricane "protection." It is considered hurricane "risk reduction."
