Hurricane Island and New England are coasts many problems as for source, and signal phrases. Nick, Taylor wrote about many W.PA projects in his book. American-Made, according to Taylor the Hurricane, “An editorial lauded the role of an admirably organized meteorological service in informing the world the about the approach” (Taylors 375). That is times many people are lost they property and they are lost treasures money in the States of the Long Island and New England. They are taking upon many lost lives of the Human being and there are lost very thing they have like, House, car, all of them.
There are simplify themselves, according Web site in essay the Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans are coast many problems houses, building, and all construction of the Cities that state and neighbors states. The New Oreland Historical society has a website that tells the story of Hurricane New Oreland project in state. According to this source, the Hurricane of the New Orland says, according to web site, Being an old port city, we have the original influence of the French, Spanish, and African-American that were here original” (judy walker -1) this is very bad any time and very years according to weather in very years.


It was really surprise when the Hurricane happened because the weather forecasters pronounced that the weather is good and people were enjoying lingering and enjoying during their warm seasonal, but unfortunately it was really bad Hurricane as it squeezed between two high-pressure systems of going at sixty mile an hour in south of Atlantic. The condition was too bad and it was getting worse as many people lost their home as the Hurricane reached Connecticut, Rhode island, and Massachusetts with no warning because there no communication as the Hurricane destroyed all the wires of phones, Radio and computers so people couldn’t pass to each other and effected and destroyed all the properties of the Society. The assistance of fire chief said “some of the houses just blew up like feathers.”
Hurricane Katrina’s impact on the economy and infrastructure, because people lose their lives, homes and properties so absolutely it made reduces the
Many different states represent an immediate concern to commercial enterprises,
Such as the policy .Understanding the severity of the damages
And the magnitude of the recovery efforts is important for both private and public
Decision makers and deploying resources in the affected area of making better to insist by given hand and I think that really good activity of Humine rights.

the most interesting ideas that i found in the chapter was that the hurricane faced in the country while there was a lot of problem the country like economic cisises. so there were a lot people died and others lost theri homes also in page "382" says there were 260 dead in phone island with the body counting still rising and 10,000 homes had been destoryed or damaged but soon the WPA exist that time during roosevelt's terms were answered the hurricane and helped the people to rebuilt the regions and the cities spending about $25 million for almost most homes in the states that grapped the hurricane.
in page "376" i found some interesting that says "one man drowned when he tried to swim from a swamped car near the queens water front at whitestone landing and two more were lost at Trogs Neck in the Bronx after rescuing residents from the rising water of long Island sound.

The most important thing is that WPA could spend $25 million rebuild the region and all damages the Hurricane Katrina and WPA in their fast-moving to cleanup roads, inside city, even the water that people needs and it seems that is most interesting fact that WPA proved On August 28th, 2005, Hurricane Katrina hit the southern states of the United States with devastating effect and destroyed. It was killed that more than 1,800 people and more than $81 billion dollars in damages occurred. As a result, efforts to assist those affected by Hurricane Katrina still continue, as those affected by the terrible hurricane continue to work to regain the health and livelihood that they had before the storm. The resources below provide access to historical information related to the event that American people faced. So basically if there is no WPA I thing the government cannot solve alone the effected of the public.

I think the most interesting idea in the reading is how some US citizens including WPA workers cleaned up the floods help thier fellow citizens after the hurricane disappeared. "The WPA, along with the Coastal Guard, the and navy, the CCC, and Red Cross, had feild agents headed to long Island and New England" (Taylor 379). WPA's workers and help the New England residents by restorations any necessary public facilities and roads."By Thursday night WPA and other lobarers were filling sandbags and loading them into trucks"(Taylor 380). This Idea is really awesome because if the citizens in any given nation don't help each other during a disasterous times, they would surely suffer.

In contrast, to residents in Lousianna which hit by Hurricane Katrinna, didn't recieve enough assistance. This hurricane form over Gulf of Mexica and strengthen rapidly 3 category when it land falls in eastsouth in Lousiana. Hurricanes is one of the deadliest and costliest hurricane ever in the history in the US. "At least 1,836 people lost their lives in the actual hurricane and in the subsequent floods, making it the deadliest U.S. hurricane since the 1928 Okeechobee Hurricane"(Wikipedea). More than one million persons had fled from Lousiann state specially New Orleans. Federal Government did'nt act swifly and so little work has done to evacute the resident.

Interesting Fact about Hurricane Katrina by Abdulwasi

Hurrican is listed as the third deadliest hurricans in American history killing more than 800 people and flooding the majority part of the New Orlean city.

Journal 8 The Hurricane

The unexpected disaster that struck the coastal residents reminded me of what happen to New Orleans people back in 2005. The only difference was that New Orlean residents had being warned but were ignorant to leave. There was no warning whatsoever in this case and it hit everyone by surprise. Sixty-five-mile-an-hour winds tore through everything in their path including homes, cars, trains and boats. It took the lives of rich and poor alike. The seven children that drowned when the wave swept their school bus were really sad. The interesting thing was the WPA-built seawalls along coastal beaches withstood the storm. Their (WPA) hard work and effort that they put in to some of their structures possibly saved lives.

On the other hand, Hurricane Katrina was far more severe and caused more damage. According to Wikipedia, Katrina precipitated the worst engineering disaster in the history of the United States. Knowing how advanced we are in technology and structural engineering; this was really interesting to know. These two Hurricanes were similar in causing damage and catching people by surprise. In conclusion, this was a heart breaking moment knowing how anything can change from a clear breezy day to a gloomy dark aftermath

Journal 8 : Hurricane

This chapter is about the hurricane that occured in the north eastern coast of the U.S, by New York and Rhode Island area. The hurricane was really terrible, the winds traveled at a huge speed, its went from fouty mile to ninty miles per hour in less than two hours. It killed hundreds of people, and about ten thousand loose their homes. Its shocking to know that hurricanes can reach up to the north eastern coast, I thought that hurricanes only affects the gulf coast region.

Hurricane Katrina was the sixth strongest overall hurricanes, concidered to be the most costly and the fifth deadliest hurricane. eighty percent of the state was flooded. Katrina caused the deadliest natural disaster in the us, it causes over 1,800 death. Compared to the one in long island , Katrina is way much worst.

Journal Eight by Abdulwasi

The Hurricane was a devastating event for all the people who lived in the area at the time. It killed a lot of people as well as destroying what ever got in its way. However, I liked the role of WPA at the time. It helped keep the dam from collapsing. The dams protected several people and properties worth more than $100.000 as well. WPA showing up and help fight the storm was the most positive and patriotic thing they have done especially at the time of the economic crises. Not only the WPA did prevent the dam from destroying, they also helped rebuild the cities that were destroyed by the hurricane.

Hurricane Katrina fact

The most interesting fact to me was that Hurricane Katrina was one of the five deadliest hurricanes in history, and sixth strongest of them all!!!!!!

Hurricane Katrina

Hurricane Katrina happened in the year of 2005 Atlantic hurricane season was one of the five deadliest and worrest hurricane in the history of the United States.

Hurricane katrine began in August of 2005 for four different states in the United States such as Southern Florida, Gulf of mexico, Texas and Southeast of Louisiana. this hurricane caused a lot of deaths and flooding in Florida before turning in the Gulf of Mexico. Then the storm reached in southeast Louisiana in August 29 which was the one that has caused severe destruction along the Gulf coast from central Florida to Texas, much of it due to the storm surge. The most severe loss of life and property damage occurred in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Today there are still people fled the hurricane katrina displaced residents in Mississippi and Louisiana are still living in other states those who does't have any home to live or go back because of the floods destroyed everything they had .

It was a really horrible hurricane!!! Again so many people died, and a lot of homes were destroyed. Two hundred and sixty people were dead, and 10,000 homes had been destroyed in Rhode Island alone. it meant that more and more people became homless. The most surprising was passage was on page 376, last chapter. There people were on the beach glancing along the shoreline. They saw a fog, but then realized that it was a huge wave coming. It was too late to run. Remindes me of a big tsunami that happend four or five years ago in Thailand, where millions of people were injured, and thousands died.


The hurricane that occurred in New England was very dangerous and destroyed a lot of ground. The hurricane had gone so many amounts of days and kept going reaching other states going from forty miles an hour to almost ninety miles an hour. It had killed several amounts of people. Hurricane Katrina was very sever hurricane that it made the history of the worst hurricane in the United States which occurred in a lot of states but most of all effected New Orleans that most. This hurricane had killed a lot of people and destroyed a lot of homes. So many people have been reported lost and still are. The city it has destroyed had become just one big flood. Until know there are people that are without homes and some that live in trails three years after this hurricane attacked.
chapter 9 in the book American-Made was about a hurricane that moved up the side of the east coast and hit the New England states like Rhode island and New York and Massachusetts. the one thing that i was able to take away from this is a relating topic to what i have learned in economics. my teacher in their says that one bad thing can lead to many food things like the hurricane this was able to provide work for 100,000 people with work and more to come. other examples that were given were like divorces, jobs that would come out of this would be like your attorney the judge and other participants that are used in the financial process. it was also an eye opener just to see the stats and the toll that it took on just a few states. the only thing in life time that is relate able is hurricane Katrina. by only hearing about is it seems to just go in and out but to see the information on paper it really opens your eyes to how your day to day life is can be affected. to put the two hurricanes side by side the numbers would be 1,836 lost their lives in Katrina and in 1938's hurricane 682 were lost and 1,700 were injured. also their is the cost of each Katrina cost was 81.2 billion dollars and the hurricane in the book cost only 100 million.
