Every year, thousands and even millions (when tropical cyclones pass over heavily-populated areas) of people find themselves in the eye of some type of tropical system. Keep in mind that the eye is the calmest part of the storm, while immediately surrounding it is the eyewall, which typically has...
Two leeves break in New Orleans covering 80% of the city in water. The severe floods were also a major cause for many deaths.
Most people migrated to Texas, Alabama, Louisiana and Chicago
Hurricanes, including Katrina, can be measured from space by many different types of satellite sensors. These include sensors that passively and actively measure radiation in the visible and infrared parts of the spectrum, among others. Data from the ground are also obtained by ship reports, buoy...
Scientists had took satellite images to predict where hurricane Katrina would land.
If you are referring to Hermine , that storm was never a hurricane, only a tropical storm. In order to be considered a hurricane a storm must have sustained winds of at least 74 mph. Hermine's highest winds were 65 mph.
it hit at 12:45 in the after noon
Hurricane Katrina caused many thunderstorms, as do all hurricanes.
When the wind speeds reach 74 miles per hour they are then classified as a category 1 hurricane.
Katrina was only a tropical depression for a few hours. Soon after forming, Tropical Depression 12 became Tropical Storm Katrina.
The Eye Wall on a hurricane is the area of strong winds and rain before the eye of the storm. It is usually considered to be the most powerful force of the hurricane. The eye wall is in the center of the storm , the area that surrounds the eye, and that part is a place of dead calm.

i think u may want hurricane Katrina, from new Orleans
Most of the deaths from Hurricane Katrina were drownings due to the hurricane's storm surge. Some deaths may have been due to wind damage such as falling trees.
I'm pretty sure it was AM.
The storm named Allison never became a hurricane, it was just a tropical storm. A hurricane/tropical storm name is retired if the storm is especially devastating, and Tropical Storm Allison of 2001 caused massive damage from flooding. Because of this no future storm will be named Allison (normally a...
No. But Katrina was the 6th largest in history. The largest Hurricane? The Great Labor Day Storm. Was the largest.

The average hurricane is 300 miles wide, but sizes vary. The smallest hurricane ever recorded was 60 miles wide. The widest hurricanes ever recorded was 1,350 miles wide.
There are many alphabets of names, so this event is extremely unlikely; however, if it did happen, the hurricane would be named with the Greek alphabet. This has happened only once when when after Wilma, the last name on the 2005 list, six more storms formed and were named Alpha through Zeta.
Hurricane Katrina did not form over land. Katrina formed over the Atlantic Ocean near the Bahamas and was moved over land by wind currents. Hurricanes cannot form over land.
Hurricane Katrina formed as Tropical Depression Twelve over the southeastern Bahamas on August 23, 2005 as the result of an interaction of a tropical wave and the remains of Tropical Depression Ten
A hurricane with 120 mph winds would be a category 3.
Hurricane Katrina was the deadliest and most destructive Atlantic hurricane of the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season.
A hurricane is a huge storm! It can be up to 600 miles across and have strong winds spiraling inward and upward at speeds of 75 to 200 mph. Each hurricane usually lasts for over a week, moving 10-20 miles per hour over the open ocean. Hurricanes gather heat and energy through contact with warm ocean...

Bridges and levees are just two of the man made structures thatwere destroyed by hurricane Katrina. Many homes, schools, andbusinesses were also destroyed when hurricane Katrina hitLouisiana.
No. A tsunami is caused by an earthquake far out, in the ocean floor (bottom), and has no correlation with a hurricane.
Some people cannot afford to move. Some people are willing to take the risk. Some likely don't believe that there will be another storm like Katrina. Another factor that must be taken into account is that because New Orleans is an already well-established city near the mouth of the Mississippi...
If you are referring to Hurricane Katrina, the effects were devastating. Many homes and businesses were destroyed, especially in New Orleans which was badly flooded. Biloxi, Mississippi was also devastated. Over 1,800 people were killed including more than 1,500 in Louisiana and over 200 in...

No. Hurricane Katrina was the costliest storm in the U.S. in termsor property damage, but it was not the largest in terms of theactual size of the storm.
Yes, they were warned too well, you might say. Almost the entire East Coast was under a hurricane warning at some point because Floyd was very difficult to predict exactly were it would recurve to the north. If it recurved any later, it would have struck different parts of the East Coast. As it...
A Hurricane is more powerful because they do indeed release much more energy than a torn. That mostly because a hurricane is much larger than a tornado. However, a tornado can be more violent than even the worst hurricane and cause more severe damage in a localized area. Hurricane winds can...

Katrina made landfalls in the states of Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi with damaging effects from flooding and tornadoes in several other states.
The storm surge generated by the hurricane overtopped or broke through the levees protecting the city. As a result much of the city became flooded, as much as 80% at one point. Flooding remained in some areas for more than three weeks. Relief efforts were overwhelmed, and more than 1800 people...

One of the primary reasons for people staying in their homes was that there had been so many false alarms in the past. There were numerous occurrences in that region (or area) where hurricanes were predicted to be massive and inflict incredible damage. However, when many of these storms came to pass...
Winds and storm surge affected New Orleans for about 2 days, August 29 and 30, 2005. The flooding began that day and the water was not removed from some areas for about 3 weeks thereafter, because the levees had to be repaired. A few areas in eastern New Orleans were reflooded by the storm surge...
