In this article, the writer discusses assessment and planning relating to natural disasters. The writer discusses that prior to Hurricane Katrina, the City of New Orleans was full of levees that were poorly constructed due to "poor planning and botched contract work". Thus, when the Hurricane hit, the levees were overrun and collapsed, causing canals to flood into neighborhoods, thereby destroying everything in its wake. This natural disaster was physically devastating to the New Orleans area and emotionally devastating to the country.
From the Paper:"Unfortunately, flooding and natural disasters in the United States are not uncommon. On August 29, 2005, hurricane Katrina devastated the New Orleans area causing the drainage canals to collapse turning neighborhoods into lakes, with 80 percent of the city flooded (Times-Picayune 2005, as cited in Johnson 132). Almost 288,000 people were left homeless, and many are now living in trailers provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency."
