Hurricane Katrina hit the U.S. on August 29, 2005.

Hurricane Katrina hit the U.S. on August 29, 2005.

Winds of 140 mph created a 30-foot storm surge.

Water breached the dam that protected the city of New Orleans and flooded the low-lying coastlines of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi.

With the damage estimated at more than $200 million, and more than one million people forced to leave their homes, Katrina is the most expensive and most destructive natural disaster in U.S. history.
