Hurricane Katrina
New Orleans Mayor on Hurricane Katrina & What Went Wrong

Former mayor of New Orleans, Louisiana, Ray Nagin, recalls the flooding of his city during Hurricane Katrina. He remarks on how failure to adequately handle the hurricane and prevent damages and casualties had much to do with poor communication between governing powers: “Some goofy laws that basically say there is not a clear distinction of when the federal government stops and when the state government starts.” Hurricane Katrina hit southeast Louisiana on August 29, 2005 and approximately 1,464 people in New Orleans died from this tragic natural disaster.
