Dubbed a “superstorm,” Hurricane Katrina claimed over 1,800 lives, cost around $150 billion dollars in total damages, and displaced over one million people in the Gulf Coast region. The hurricane made landfall on August 29, 2005, and the ferocity of the storm was magnified by floodwall failures, lawlessness and subsequent difficulties all far outweighing expectations. RT talks to survivors, rescuers and engineers about the tragedy and the future of the city.
