One year ago today...

One year ago today Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast of the United States. Hurricane Katrina had the worst economic cost of any hurricane that has hit the United States. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has just put up a web site on Katrina. This web site links to satellite photos of the storm, pictures of the aftermath, and much more. For a look at the human toll of the Hurricane, take a look at the World Health Organization (WHO) report on mental illness and suicides before and after the storm. On this blog over the past year we have linked to a variety of government reports on Katrina relief, check out these search results to see those reports.
