Hurricane Katrina - New Orleans Storm Surge
 
15:08
Subscribe to Naked Science - http://goo.gl/wpc2Q1 Every other Wednesday we present a new video, so join us to see the truth laid bare... 24th August 2005 the National Hurricane Centre in Florida scrambled its hurricane hunter aircraft, their mission, to fly into the heart of a powerful new storm that was building over the Bahamas. It was the eleventh in a busy season and had been given the name Katrina. Like all tropical storms, Katrina was powered by the surface of the ocean, warm moist air sucked high into the atmosphere then sent speeding back down to create an immense whirlpool of supercharged wind and rain. Hurricane Katrina was the deadliest and most destructive Atlantic tropical cyclone of the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season. It is the costliest natural disaster, as well as one of the deadliest hurricanes in the history of the United States. At least 1,833 people died in the hurricane and subsequent floods. The most significant number of deaths occurred in New Orleans, Louisiana, which flooded as the levee system catastrophically failed. As the centre of Hurricane Katrina passed southeast of New Orleans on 29th August winds downtown were in the Category 3 range with frequent intense gusts and tidal surge. In the City of New Orleans, the storm surge caused more than 50 breaches in drainage canal levees and also in navigational canal levees and precipitated the worst engineering disaster in the history of the United States. By 31st August around 80% of New Orleans was flooded, with some parts under 15 feet of water. Between 80 and 90 percent of the residents of New Orleans were evacuated safely in time before the hurricane struck, testifying to some of the success of the evacuation measures. The Louisiana Superdome was used to house and support some of those who were unable to evacuate. Television shots frequently focused on the Superdome as a symbol of the flooding occurring in New Orleans. The disaster had major implications for a large segment of the population, economy, and politics of the entire United States. Clip from the documentary “The Year the Earth Went Wild”.

Hurricane Isaac, Katrina etc. - New Orleans Renewal (Levees Rebuilt)
 
01:19
Hurricane Isaac, Katrina etc. - New Orleans Renewal (Levees Rebuilt)- as part of the news series by GeoBeats. The levees in New Orleans that were decimated by the effects of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, are finally in place. The 113 mile long construction made up of levees, flood walls and pumps cost a reported 14 and a half billion dollars. There are two fifty foot lift gates which allow boat access to the waterways and can be shut to block the water from a nearby lake, and 95 foot navigation gate with two sides weighing 220 tons each is in place to seal off a canal in case of hurricane conditions. Hurricane Issac - New Orleans Renewal (Levees Rebuilt) - Katrina, which caused 81 billion dollars of damage, and almost two thousand deaths, proved the old system of levees was insufficient. Initial construction on the project started in 2006 and engineers have vastly improved on the reconstructed walls to make them more resilient and effective against the inevitable storms that occur during hurricane season. Allowing the immense project to move forward as quickly as possible, Congress voted to give all the funding in a lump sum rather than giving the money incrementally. Senior project manager Kevin G. Wagner told the New York Times, "It's truly amazing, starting in 2009, to be where we are today."

AMAZING RAW VIDEO Hurricane Katrina roof top flooding St Bernard La
 
09:22
Raw Video of flooding beyond roof tops in St. Bernard Parish Louisiana DURING Katrina. Many think the levees failed AFTER Katrina, but this video shows differently. That is my friend ROCKY at his home, live DURING the storm of the century! What is amaxing is at 8:39 AM you see the houses, cars, everything OK. In just over two hours, unbelievable inundation of the flood waters. The boat they swam to was actually still attached to its trailer and the trailer was stuck on a fence. Once in the boat, they were able to retrieve life jackets and swim back to the safety of the two-story house. You may have seen Rocky on national news as the guy who pulled a FEMA-like trailer to Washington to visit with George Bush so the New Orleans and Gulf Coast area would not be forgotten. And Rocky, you are a survivor! I am amazed each time I watch this. Rocky, stop and see me next time you come to Knoxville!! Kevin

Six Flags New Orleans: Killed by Katrina

Six Flags New Orleans: an amusement park few have visited in an operating state. This park was open for only five years before Hurricane Katrina destroyed it along with any hope of reopening. In a time of urban exploration videos and photos of the abandoned park, what was the park ACTUALLY like? What rides did it have and what changes did it go through during its brief period of operation? In this documentary-style video, I go through the park's creation, notable rides, upgrade into Six Flags New Orleans, and its eventual demise. Written and narrated by Jonathan Baker. UPDATE: I know how Zydeco is pronounced now. Sorry about that. I tried my best to credit the original uploaders of the footage I used. Seeing as footage of this park is hard to come by, the original uploaders deserve to have their videos viewed in full as well. Please look for them if you wish to see the full-length versions of these videos. Thank you all for your patience as I made this video.

Engineering Disasters | New Orleans Engineering Fail - Documentary Movies. Hurricane Katrina was the eleventh named storm and fifth hurricane of the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season. It was the costliest natural disaster, as well as one of the five deadliest hurricanes, in the history of the United States. The storm is currently ranked as the third most intense United States landfalling tropical cyclone, behind only the 1935 Labor Day hurricane and Hurricane Camille in 1969. Overall, at least 1,245 people died in the hurricane and subsequent floods, making it the deadliest United States hurricane since the 1928 Okeechobee hurricane. Total property damage was estimated at $108 billion (2005 USD), roughly four times the damage wrought by Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Read More: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Katrina

Superdome After Hurricane Katrina - Inside Edition (2005)
 
04:31
When Hurricane Katrina slammed into the Gulf Coast and New Orleans in particular, the Louisiana Superdome became a “shelter of last resort” for those who were unable or initially unwilling to evacuate. Upwards of 20,000 people sought refuge in the Superdome as a result of Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent flooding after the failure of the levee system in Greater New Orleans. The conditions inside the Superdome were deplorable. One stranded resident told a reporter, “They’re housing us like animals,” while others compared the Superdome to a “concentration camp” or “prison”. The shelter was understaffed, undersupplied and had no electricity after Katrina knocked out the power. Toilets quickly overflowed. Garbage piled up and began to rot in the sweltering heat. The foul smell inside the Superdome was staggering. As the last of the evacuees were finally taken away on buses, I was the first reporter allowed inside the Superdome to document the horrific conditions.

HORRIFYING: Coffins Float Down Road In USA Louisiana Floods 'Worse Than Hurricane Katrina'
 
03:09
HORRIFYING: Coffins Float Down Road In USA Louisiana Floods 'Worse Than Hurricane Katrina' Devastating floods bring CASKETS up from graves in Louisiana while aerial photos reveal Texas town entirely submerged A deluge of flooding has caused caskets in a Lousiana cemetery to rise to the surface as a town in Texas remains submerged under water. After more than a week of relentless rain in the southern states, water levels have been rising prompting many people to be evacuated from their homes and have also seen six people die. And in a spooky scene at a cemetery in Calcasieu Parish in Louisiana, local officials were forced to wrangle coffins that had been displaced by the flood waters. The caskets had unearthed from the low lying cemetery on the Texas border prompting the county coroner to warn people to stay away from the grave sites. Zeb Johnson from the County Coroner's office said: 'Do not go to the cemeteries.' 'These vaults weigh 1,600 to 1,800 pounds; they are caskets full of water. 'And if they are full of water, we know how to handle and take care of that.' The warning came as the town of Deweyville in Texas remained under water after the Sabine River burst its banks following a week of wet weather. The rain has displaced thousands of people, forced the temporary closure of a major interstate, and overwhelmed small towns along the Louisiana border. People rushed to fill sand bags to place around their houses as authorities warned of record flooding not seen since 1884 along the Sabine River. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who is scheduled to tour the area today, has issued a disaster declaration across much of the region. Livestock was being moved to higher ground and residents were trying to salvage equipment in some areas, including by using small boats to move equipment out of flooded buildings. Officials warned people using boats to escape floodwaters to be careful of fast-moving waters and of poisonous snakes and other wildlife that could pose threats. In the town of Orange, Mayor Jimmy Sims said he'd never seen the kind of flooding that has hit the area about 100 miles east of Houston over the last week. He asked people to stay away from the downtown area yesterday amid its evacuation. Although the rain has mostly subsided, the water is moving south along several waterways, including the Sabine, Neches and Trinity rivers, heading to Galveston Bay - but not before inundating several riverside towns. The heavy rains also prompted authorities to release massive amounts of water from the Toledo Bend Reservoir, including at a rate of 207,000 cubic feet per second - similar to the flow rate over Niagara Falls. The flooding also forced intermittent closures of Interstate 10, one of the country's major transportation arteries. The Texas Department of Transportation at one point closed the eastbound lanes and motorists as far away as El Paso, in another time zone, were warned to find alternative routes. The interstate was reopened by early Tuesday afternoon but hen Orange County officials said later that day night that eastbound lanes near the Louisiana border had been closed due to high water. US President Barack Obama issued a disaster declaration on Sunday the flood-ravaged state, where six people have died and emergency crews have rescued more than 20,000 people stranded. As many as 10,000 were living in emergency shelters, officials said, after catastrophic rains pummeled much of the state's south from last Thursday evening, forcing thousands to flee rising waters. On the weekend, rain accumulations totaled about half a metre in parts of the New Orleans and Baton Rouge areas, as images showed residential areas covered in metres of water, with cars and homes partially submerged. Residents were pulled from swamped cars, flooded homes and floodwaters threatened hospitals across the southern part of the state. A spokeswoman for Louisiana governor John Bel Edwards, Shauna Sanford, said some 40,000 homes and business were reported without power. The White House declared four parishes, equivalent to counties in some US states, major disaster areas. "I fully expect that more parishes will be added to the declaration on a rolling basis," Edwards said in a statement in which he called the flooding "unprecedented" for his state. Anna Johnson, of Denham Springs, near Baton Rouge, captured the erie sight of coffins floating away after being uprooted as graves became sodden in the catastrophic rain. “We’ve never seen anything like this. It’s worse than Hurricane Katrina,” the Mirror reports. "My husband is on rescue missions right now. He has a boat and he's helping local sheriffs department." While US media reported that floodwaters had begun to recede in some areas, they were flowing into others. National Weather Service predicted that many waterways would remain above flood stage on Monday. The agency continued to issue flood warnings, saying water in many areas would not recede for a few days.

Hurricane Katrina DVD Documentary, from Miami to New Orleans and Biloxi.
 
01:14:06
The only independent video production that documents Hurricane Katrina from both sides of the eye as the storm devastated the United States Gulf Coast. Filmed in Miami, FL at Katrina's first land fall and in the air with the NOAA Hurricane Hunters, we chart Katrina's path towards the record breaking landfall. The footage continues in New Orleans, LA prior to Katrina to document the evacuation of the region. As the storm nears the Gulf Coast, it also continues in Biloxi, MS before the record breaking storm surge destroys the coast. We bring you through the storm and after the storm for an in-depth look at what was really happening 24 hours after Katrina in New Orleans. This production was filmed and produced by the videographers who were on the ground and in the middle of Katrina the storm and storm surge came on shore on the morning of 08/29/2005. To license footage from our production, please contact us at http://www.StormChasingVideo.com No part of this production or any of our footage on our YouTube channel can be rebroadcast without prior written authorization. Update Note: 9/11/2014 I did not pick up the guy in the middle of the storm because what he was looking for was right down the street. I had walking pneumonia and in a shady city with a lot of expensive gear. For those of you complaining about why I did not pick the guy up, I ask why did the Mayor not order the evacuation sooner? The same mayor, Nagin who this week began serving a 10-year prison sentence, following his conviction in February on 20 criminal counts! Why did I give the second guy a ride? Because he did not have far to go and he had a puppy with him and I don't care what race you are, if you are risking your life to save you're pet, that wins points for me. Also after the storm the next day when I knew I was going to Houston that night, I gave away the several empty fuel can's, weeks supply of food and 10 gallons of bottle water that were also in the truck and had room in the vehicle for the man and his dog. Don't call me a racist, I'm the only one that has told the truth to what really happened in NOLA without it being political.

GRAPHIC PIX Recovery of bodies after hurricane Katrina

(16 Sep 2005) US President George W. Bush on Thursday proposed a sweeping plan for the federal government to pick up most of the costs of rebuilding New Orleans and the rest of the hurricane-ravaged US Gulf Coast, in one of the largest reconstruction projects the world has ever seen. It has been 19 days since Hurricane Katrina struck the US Gulf coast region and still waters flood the lower parts of Orleans parish, near the University of New Orleans. As an APTN crew used a boat to travel around the parish, search and recovery crews were seen going building to building. US Army Search and Rescue's Lieutenant Bill Pursinger described scenes witnessed by his teams as they worked around the neighbourhood. He said that although the locations of many of the bodies had been recorded and sent to FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency), the group responsible for picking them up had not yet done so. Across five Gulf Coast states, the death toll from Katrina stood at 710, led by 474 in Louisiana. Meanwhile, electricity has been restored to large sections of the New Orleans' Central Business District and there are signs that that part of the city is starting to come alive. The city's Mayor C. Ray Nagin announced plans on Thursday to reopen some of New Orleans' most vibrant and least flood-ravaged neighbourhoods over the next week and a half, including the French Quarter. The move could bring back more than 180,000 of the city's original half-million residents.

Hurricane Katrina 10th anniversary: Archive footage of the devastation to New Orleans
 
01:11
It is 10 years since Hurricane Katrina, a colossal storm that wreaked havoc across America's Gulf Coast and brought catastrophic devastation to the Louisiana city of New Orleans. After forming over the Bahamas on 23 August 2005, the category five hurricane tore its way across the Gulf of Mexico with winds of up to 175mph. Over 80% of New Orleans was flooded after the levees designed to protect the city failed on 29 August 2005. Those who lacked the means of ability to evacuate were left stranded in the city. Thousands flocked into the iconic Superdome stadium, which was converted into an enormous relief shelter, whilst others were rescued from rooftops as the flood waters washed away whole neighbourhoods.

President Bush speech on Hurricane Katrina

(16 Sep 2005) 1. US President George W. Bush walks to podium 2. SOUNDBITE (English) George W. Bush, US President: "Good evening. I am speaking to you from the city of New Orleans - nearly empty, still partly under water, and waiting for life and hope to return. Eastward from Lake Pontchartrain, across the Mississippi coast, to Alabama and into Florida, millions of lives were changed in a day by a cruel and wasteful storm." 3. Aerial views of flooded city, taking from helicopter travelling with Bush 4. SOUNDBITE (English) George W. Bush, US President: "And all who question the future of the Crescent City need to know: There is no way to imagine America without New Orleans, and this great city will rise again." 5. Pan view of Bush arriving on the deck of the USS Iwo Jima being met by local leaders 6. SOUNDBITE (English) George W. Bush, US President: "When communities are rebuilt, they must be even better and stronger than before the storm. Within the Gulf region are some of the most beautiful and historic places in America. As all of us saw on television, there is also some deep, persistent poverty in this region as well. And that poverty has roots in a history of racial discrimination, which cut off generations from the opportunity of America. We have a duty to confront this poverty with bold action. So let us restore all that we have cherished from yesterday, and let us rise above the legacy of inequality." 7. Aerial views of flooded city, taking from helicopter travelling with Bush 8. SOUNDBITE (English) George W. Bush, US President: "Four years after the frightening experience of September 11th, Americans have every right to expect a more effective response in a time of emergency. When the federal government fails to meet such an obligation, I as President am responsible for the problem, and for the solution. So I have ordered every Cabinet secretary to participate in a comprehensive review of the government response to the hurricane." 9. Aerial views of flooded city, taking from helicopter travelling with Bush 10. SOUNDBITE (English) George W. Bush, US President: "I know that when you sit on the steps of a porch where a home once stood ... or sleep on a cot in a crowded shelter ... it is hard to imagine a bright future. But that future will come. The streets of Biloxi and Gulfport will again be filled with lovely homes and the sound of children playing. The churches of Alabama will have their broken steeples mended and their congregations whole. And here in New Orleans, the street cars will once again rumble down St. Charles, and the passionate soul of a great city will return." 11. Aerial views of New Orleans STORYLINE: US President George W. Bush on Thursday proposed a sweeping plan for the federal government to pick up most of the costs of rebuilding New Orleans and the rest of the hurricane-ravaged US Gulf Coast, in one of the largest reconstruction projects the world has ever seen. In a televised address to the nation the president announced: "There is no way to imagine America without New Orleans, and this great city will rise again." Standing in Jackson Square in the heart of New Orlean's French Quarter, Bush acknowledged his administration had failed to respond adequately to Hurricane Katrina, which killed hundreds of people across five states. Bush faced the nation at a vulnerable point in his presidency. Most Americans disapprove of his handling of Katrina, and his job-approval rating has been dragged down to the lowest point of his presidency also because of dissatisfaction with the Iraq war and rising gas prices. He has struggled to demonstrate the same take-charge leadership he displayed after the September 11 terror attacks four years ago.

Katrina Looters
 
01:54
Looting of the Irish Channel Wal-Mart during Katrina. Poor people loot. It has nothing to do with the color of their skin. Poor Black people happen to live in urban areas where there is more to loot whereas poor White people, like we see in many parts of Appalachia, don't have many places to loot -it has not a thing to do with skin color and is a product of being poor and disadvantaged. Wall-Mart actually ok'd for the local police force to go in and get the supplies they needed. Many people went overboard, however, and did loot. Please stop using the expedient and wrong reason for these people looting. All races have the ability to exhibit all behaviors under certain conditions. Try to understand.

Years before Hurricane Katrina devastated the city of New Orleans, PBS Nova ScienceNow did a piece on the massive impact a hurricane would have. They predicted the failure of the levies, the swamping of the city, the failure of the eroded wetlands to soften the blow. Truly a prescient bit of video right here, considering what happened soon after. Please note: This small segment is used for educational uses and as such is condiered FAIR USE under U.S. law.

They Thought They Were Just Abandoned

In October 2005 The Historic New Orleans Collection initiated Through Hell and High Water: Katrina's First Responders Oral History Project, partnering with local, state, and federal agencies to document their experiences. In this interview Louisiana Department of Corrections agent Orville Lamartiniere discusses the evacuation of panicked inmates from chest-deep rising water in Orleans Parish Prison's Central Lockup. He also describes convincing escaped inmates from the fifth floor of an adjacent building to return to their cells for subsequent rescue. The remainder of his interview tells of inmates waiting days for evacuation buses to take them from the Broad Street overpass. This interview is a part of the exhibition Katrina +5: Documenting Disaster, which serves as a reminder of the history made since August 29, 2005 and The Historic New Orleans Collection's ongoing efforts to record it.
