Understanding Hurricane Katrina

The devastation that Katrina unleashed on New Orleans is unbelievable. The
photos and videos emerging in the past few days are truly heart wrenching.
I'm
overwhelmed by the tragedy.

But it wasn't a surprise to the experts. National Geographic's article,
"Gone with the water" reads like a recent news story.

It describes the effects of a powerful hurricane that hits New Orleans.
Sadly, it's remarkably accurate.

This article will help you understand why the magnitude of the disaster was
so severe. A number of factors, both natural and human, are involved. And
once
you read it, you may wonder why better preparations weren't made.

the hurricane efforts, or that is searching for lost loved ones in this
tragic disaster.

More on Hurricane Katrina
please read this open minded as I feel the author of the article can use
some education on writing about blind people, or at least that is my
opinion.
You will see why if you choose to read the article.

people"
