Reason so many lives were lost in Katrina was becasue of stupidity


Outside of New Orleans how many lives were lost


....Cat 5 hurricane coming your way , you live 10ft below sea level(sure half of them did not know that) you live inside a levee

So your mayor says leave , your governor says leave but let's stay and ride it out and loot after its over

Again, Katrina DID NOT HIT New Orleans. They had a tropical storm a month or so prior that caused more wind damage than Katrina. People did not leave because they did not feel it would be bad. And, had the levees not busted...it wouldn't have been. 20 miles one way or the other in the track of a hurricane makes a big difference.

I know what you're talking about. Know one knows the real damage Katrina done. The news only cover NO. Mississippi was hit way harder than NO but that wasnt as dramatic as chocolate city. Same as Rita. People who werent a part of it don't realize how bad it was because it wasn't covered. I'm not trying to downplay Katrina. But Rita was just as bad.

I agree that Rita's destruction of the coastline was just as bad. Hell, they are all the same at landfall. My arguement is that Rita did not sustain the power that Katrina did once it made landfall. We are 150 miles from where Katrina made landfall. Our winds were borderline Cat 2 for most of the day...sustained. Hattiesburg, MS has gotta be 200 miles from landfall and they were hit with Cat 1 winds. I've looked at many maps and it doesn't look like Rita sustained Cat 1 force winds for over 70-80 miles from impact. That is my arguement.

We stayed in opeleusas for Rita. 60 miles east and 60 miles north of where Rita hit. Hat hurricane force winds for 2 days. Even had trees down there and lost power for 2-3 days.
