Hurricane Katrina Project

The Hurricane Katrina Project examines the impacts of hurricanes on the Gulf Coast.  It began in response to the specific case of New Orleans’ flooding in 2005 and efforts to understand who was affected and what neighborhoods were able to rebuild.  Since then it has evolved into a broader study of the Gulf Coast region in the decades since 1950.  Click below for the main project page, which includes links to materials on Katrina and New Orleans as well as to the broader Gulf Coast research:
