Hurricane Katrina — 5 Year Retrospective

Since this is the week of the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, and her sisters Rita and Wilma, several news sources have produced special articles.  A useful listing of some of the most significant ones can be found on the website of the Homeland Security Digital Library, see Hurricane Katrina, 5 Years Later.

The first-mentioned report,  by Chris Kromm and Sue Sturgis, September 2010, Institute for Southern Studies, provides a useful description of the recovery process.  See LEARNING FROM KATRINA, Lessons from Five Years of Recovery and Renewal in the Gulf Coast.I would liked to have seen more recommendations to the federal government regarding needed changes in their approach to and framework for long-term recovery.
