Hurricane Katrina!

August 28

What happened?

This hurricane was a category 1 that landfall and escalated to 5. People are devastated because all their houses are destroyed and they have nothing left. Some people are finding little bits and pieces of there stuff on the ground, but other than that they don't have anything. The wind speed was about 140 MPH and it has been a awful couple of days for the people in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida! The government is estimating that the repairs will be around $100 billion. So it will be a lot because the wall wasn't strong enough so they're going to have to rebuild that so its going to make sure this won't happen again. If your able to go down to those states and try to help them rebuild that would be amazing because they have lost loved ones and their homes and are broken down people right now.
