In memory of that Tragic Event August 29th 2005

Hurricane Katrina – In memoriam

 

There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that Hurricane Katrina was one of the most disastrous events on record. Countless deaths and injuries, followed by the heartbreak of lost loved ones, losing one’s homes, and, like the Phoenix, the agony of arising from the ashes and rock bottom to start over.

While many fingers may be pointed at a number of organisations for the sad failing in duties and responsibilities to assist people in their time of need, the important issue to hand is the practical assistance that should have been offered and given to the needy people who require to rebuild their homes and lives. The period of blame is a past issue – what is needed are practical solutions on the ground. In addition, solid and practical engineering projects to ensure this event does not occur again.

 

There were many thousands who lost their homes in that devastating tragedy, and a year on, many thousands are still waiting for their respective insurance companies to cough up the finances to rebuild their homes. If they do not start rebuilding by the end of August, mere days away, their homes will be declared as unfit to live in.

 

Much has occurred since that fateful day in August, and to demonstrate the many post discussions and important points raised since Katrina, I list below a select number of what I consider important and thought provoking publications on the Katrina disaster.

 

The date, August 29th will always be associated with Katrina and the fateful post effects and questions the event registered.
