Hurricane Katrina

Michael Hanson

Largest hurricane by record. 3rd strongest by record.

If not dead I would have been miserable most likely floating on a log or something while helping get people to safety.
A tropical depression formed over the Bahamas becoming a tropical storm the next day
Lots of people died it was not predicted correctly because nobody thought it was going to be a category 5 at any point
Caused oil from offshore rigs and refineries filled with gas to spill into the ocean and work it’s way into residential areas and killed lots of marine life
Hurricane katrina caused 150 billion dollars in damages
Because that is where hot and cold air affects each other most commonly
