Hurricane Katrina

  1. 1. One of the natural phenomena that have affected most was Hurricane Katrina, for all the world, which hit with a destructive force in: Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, causing many destruction and deaths in the population, constructions in that area beguns to destroyd, and economny increased in a very tall porcentaje.The devastating natural phenomenon not only facilitate to stop U.S. economic growth, because it also affects world economy and Irak. Most experts believe that it will take time to establish the material losses that could reach historic levels, yet with unpredictable consequences for the global economy first. On August 29, Katrina's storm surge caused 53 different levee breaches in greater New Orleans submerging eighty percent of the city. A June 2007 report by the American Society of Civil Engineers indicated that two-thirds of the flooding were caused by the multiple failures of the city's floodwalls.[ The prices of petrol, even before the storm had reached unique levels, but those were affected because the hurricane ravaged the area where the U.S. has concentrated much of its oil operations. At the time the hurricane came to paralyze 91 percent of daily oil production and 83 percent of natural gas in the Gulf area, while nine refineries remained close. The other problem is the challenge to present the budgetary costs of reconstruction in the next two years, of all the houses destroyed that will allow households to return to normal. The cost of damage caused by Hurricane Katrina could exceed many billions of dolars. Here we can observe taht this natural problem affects many in he contry´s economy, brecause we can conclude that this phenomen is the cause of the heat that poplulation is showing to the world (global warming), but together we can let this problems go!
