The Levee breaches led to massive flooding, hundred and thousands of the people affected from the storm from Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama were displaced from their homes, and experts estimate that Katrina caused more than $100 billion in damage. (http://www.history.com/topics/hurricane-katrina) .The Ninth Ward and St. Bernard Parish were under so much water that people had to run to attics and rooftops for safety. And soon enough nearly 80 percent of the city was under some quantity of water. The government in particular was unprepared for a disaster like this. Officials, even the president at the time, George W. Bush, was unaware of how bad things were in New Orleans and didn’t know how to deal with something this terrible.
Furthermore, many people were left homeless because of all of the destruction caused by the massive tornado. A lot of boats, hotels, houses, and churches were demolished, so people did not have a structure to go to for shelter. There was also no Red Cross in the 1840’s to help, nor did they have much help from other states to rebuild their community (Hall, 2014). In essence, the
Not only did the levees fail the people of New Orleans, but their government also fell short of supplying the desperate citizens of the city with aid and support. The reaction to Hurricane Katrina to me is shockingly similar to events that have happened both in the past and today in New Orleans. In the weeks after Katrina, the people of New Orleans were devastated by the death of family members, and the loss of their businesses, but eventually they began to rebuild the city just like they did after Hurricane Betsy. Since the construction of the levees
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a disorder that can emerge after an extremely detrimental event like a natural disaster, being in the military, or death of a loved one. It is natural for a person to grieve or to be in a state of shock after an event like the ones listed above, but if a person continuously shows negative psychological reactions days or months later then the person should be checked for PTSD (Chen, Zhou, Zeng, Wu). Natural disasters are inevitable and generally unexpected, so a person does not have time to prepare. Lack of preparation can be absolutely dreadful. Unlike a natural disaster, servicemen prepare for war, but the actual battle field is a lot different from the practices and organized society the servicemen are used to, so this experience can have some effects on the brain.
Most people may only have a faint memory of that day. They recall the news articles in the days following or that their meeting was canceled, because of bad weather that later transpired into the tornado that hit towns near them. However, I will not be able to forget as easily as some, because one of the houses the storm tore through was my grandparents '. It, as well as the houses in the rest of the neighborhood, was completely leveled by the tornado. The majority of these families did not have proper insurance for something like this.
FEMA was established in 1979 when people started to complain that because of lack of resources country was not able to rescue or do them properly. In the case of Katrina in Louisiana, even though the FEMA was established they did not follow any plan to rescue the victims. People were trapped for many days without food and shelter, if only plans were implemented, lives would have been saved. The states did their entire job as they send so many letters to federal for help, but it was a federal responsibility to do the next step. Maybe because of miscommunication or misunderstanding planning were going really slow and people were blaming the government for the poor management and the states were blaming government and government were blaming states.
The problem of panhandling had become a nightmare for so many there. Much of the problems that Memphis faced had much to do with the lack of planning. Memphis did not address the growing problem of begging from panhandlers that plagued their community. So with the outcry from the citizens of Memphis they formed a commission named Downtown Memphis Commission to address the problem. The Downtown Memphis Commission, which is comprised of professionals and service agencies, has asked the citizens of Memphis not to give money to panhandlers.
They worked in harsh working conditions and had no education. Eventually, however, Czar Alexander II abolished Serfs, but they still had little education, and overall didn’t have an impact. People them began getting fed up with the Czars, so they marched to protest. These protests ended with over 1,000 protester deaths. There was great
