Some stranded residents waited days in horrible conditions for rescue to arrive. More than a thousand people died, and thousands more lost their homes. Could anyone have prevented these losses?To understand the impact of a disaster, you must understand its causes. How did Hurricane Katrina turn into a monster storm? How did poor planning contribute to the scope of the disaster? Investigate the disaster from a cause-and-effect perspective and find out!
