On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina decimated the Gulf Coast region from Texas-Louisiana-Mississippi-Alabama-Georgia to Florida. The image of Hurricane Katrina cemented in our minds what the perfect category 3 storm looks like, how it leaves catastrophic destruction across state lines, and how within minutes people can lose their lives during disasters. In addition, to date, Hurricane Katrina is still economically the costliest storm in U.S. history with estimates totaling over $125 billion.
