Hurricane Katrina Pictures

  • Great collection of pictures.

    It's a shame those people have to go through what they are going through right now. I hope there is an investigation into this whole ordeal and President Bush is jailed.

    Everyone knew those levees could only handle a category 3 type Hurricane and this was known to be a category 5 storm like a week before it actually hit- Deffinately the most evil red neck racist president in American history.

    Hardcore George Bush fans, open your eyes and stop being ignorant. This guy has screwed up so many times and now it's cost thousands of people their lives. How can he fight the war on terror when he can't even protect his own American citizens on US soil? Instead of saying, "Oh, the left hates the president no matter what". Try reading something besides Fox news and you might actually learn something.

  • Well, the real shame is that the people of New Orleans knew the storm was coming and still stayed down there. They should have gotten out and many lives could have been spared. You're right, the levees could only withstand a category 3 hurricane, so why didn't the Louisiana gov't do something about that years ago? Oh, and Louisiana's population has a huge percentage of black people, so for everyone to say President Bush is a racist because he's not rescuing the black people is the most ignorant thing I've ever heard. People say they couldn't get out because they didn't have a way out or the money, well, in all the pics, there sure are plenty of vehicles left behind that could have been driven out to safety and the transit buses were still working before the storm hit, people could have ridden north on those. Bush didn't cause thousands of people their lives, their own ignorance cost them their lives. Try using a little common sense instead of blaming everything on someone else. Why doesn't someone put the blame on themselves for not getting out when they had plenty of warning to? I'm sick of everyone saying Bush is racist, that's crap and you know it. I'm also extremely sick of listening to Mayor Nagin cuss and act like an idiot on national radio and television. He's making himself look like a fool and making New Orleans look even worse. Is that the kind of leadership New Orleans is proud to stand behind? He's a disgrace to the office he holds!!!! I also hope there is an investigation into all this and people realize how much our government is actually doing for them and stop complaining, everyone down there had the opportunity to get out, and they chose not to, that's not anyone's fault but their own. All you hardcore George Bush haters, open your eyes and maybe you'll see how ignorant YOU are being and how ignorant it was NOT to get out when you had the chance. This is not the same as the tsunami, they had no warning that was coming, everyone in the US knew hurricane Katrina was coming for weeks out. Oh, and when our military gets shot at and killed by our own people while they trying to rescue and help people, that's ridiculous. How much of an idiot do you have to be to understand that ignorance like that is why people lost their lives during hurricane katrina, not because of something President Bush did or didn't do!!!!!

  • I agree with anonymous whomever you are. Its not like President Bush asked the hurricane "Okay, Katrina come to this area of New Orleans drown it out" NO!! Its a natural disaster!!! NATURAL!! D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R!! If you were "Warned" to GET OUT. Then you should of listened. If you lived in New Orleans all your life born and raised hell...and I knew what type of land I was living in ....A BOWL I would say...
    I would have been OUT! Years and years ago.
    But during the warning: I don't care what I left behind longest if I had time to gather my family and head out to higher & Safer ground. I would have. Its just common sense. So I see no reason to call Bush names or even hate on him. He didn't bring it on no one ...people brought it on themselves. You had time. Just because Bush..is the leader of this Great Country doesn't mean he is the Superhero of all disaster cuz he ain't and he is just as human as any of us. So get over the racist thing. Waaay toooo expired.

  • I dont know whether Bush is a racist or not. He certianly is class-ist* I guess when he said: "You call them the rich,the elite...I call them my base", and smiled as the crowd roared , he revealed more than a little himself. Never has there a more glaring case of "Let them eat cake" than in this administration.
    As for the plenty of vehicles there**. Being from New Orleans I can promise you those vehicles left behind did not belong to the masses of poor New Orleanians many of whom live 3 families to an apartment. What has come of this country? Every level of government must share blame. So must each of us who sit writing posts instead of writing our representatives to get federal funding to build levees appropriate to handle what lies before us with 10 percent of out polar ice caps melting per decade. But for the Grace of God there go you!

  • I have lived in the hurricane zone my entire life and love it here, but you know if you live here, there is ALWAYS a danger of what happened in New Orleans and along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. My entire life I have heard stories about not if a hurricane would hit New Orleans, only when. As humans we tend to think we are so smart - we weren't! If was not wise to to build a city in a bowl without proper protection. We only have ourselves to blame - but do we learn, no, we will build back and wait on another Katrina.

  • That Bicth Katrina And That Hoe Rita

  • Is it not just a bit ignorant to sit here and say things like, "Those silly Louisianan's should have gotten out of there." Let's think about this... really. First off, those of us in the middle and upper class find it pretty easy to pick up and leave if we need to. We have cars. We have family that live somewhere else who we could burden with our presence for a few weeks. We have the money to sustain ourselves for a short while in such an event. We also tend to have a college degree, lending to us being able to find a job somewhere else. I'm not saying that is bad... I have all of those things.

    What is "bad" is when we assume everyone has those options. The people who were left behind to deal with the hurricane didn't, by and large. Louisiana is one of the poorest states in the country, with much of its poverty concentrated in New Orleans. Your average family living in the 9th ward (the area around the levee breach) doesn't have a car. Nor do they have a five or six figure salary... if they did, they wouldn't live in the 9th ward. After all, you have to have the keys to drive a car... and money to ride the transit. Do you really think anything became "free" just because of a hurricane? Maybe one of the biggest tragedies is the fact that the people right next to the levee were also the people with the fewest resources... can that really be a coincidence?

    What Katrina really reveals is not a bad President or the stupidity of people who live on the Gulf Coast. Katrina showed us that the kind of poverty that brings people closer to disaster and death by taking away thier option to run from imminent danger. That is a social problem. The people with the money have the power... and the poor get crapped on. It happens all over the world and it doesn't really matter whose fault it is. What matters is that social problems require complex social solutions... not new presidents. This is something I think about while I'm sitting here getting my $22,000 a year education.

    I will agree that Bush is probably not any more racist than your average American, nor is he the "superhero of hurricanes." He may still be classist, but most of us are. Could he have done more? Probably. Could we be writing letters to our congressmen telling them that we want to see more aid money in New Orleans. Definately.
