Hurricane Katrina — Ten Years Later

According to Time Magazine, it was “the most catastrophic and costly hurricane in U.S. history.” After it made landfall on the Gulf Coast (most infamously New Orleans), Hurricane Katrina was responsible for the deaths of around 2,000 people and the displacement of thousands more. According to Time, the population of New Orleans dropped from 483,633 to 200,000 residents. A decade later, New Orleans and the Gulf Coast are still dealing with Katrina’s aftermath.
To honor the anniversary, the library is a valuable resource.
