This is a 20 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Disasters & Events that Shaped America - Hurricane Katrina. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Hurricane Katrina was the 11th named storm and 5th hurricane of the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season. It was the costliest natural disaster, as well as one of the 5 deadliest hurricanes, in the history of the United States. The storm is currently ranked as the 3rd most intense United States land-falling tropical cyclone, behind only the 1935 Labor Day hurricane and Hurricane Camille in 1969.
Overall, at least 1,245 people died in the hurricane and subsequent floods, making it the deadliest United States hurricane since the 1928 Okeechobee hurricane. Total property damage was estimated at $108 billion, roughly 4 times the damage wrought by Hurricane Andrew in 1992.
In all, Hurricane Katrina killed nearly 2,000 people and affected some 90,000 square miles of the United States. Hundreds of thousands of evacuees scattered far and wide. Today, after years of recovery and rebuilding efforts, people along the Gulf Coast have made great strides in returning to life as usual even as they continue to rebuild.
