Hurricane Katrina

Sep 2005 | Comments Off on Hurricane Katrina



According to some reports, the warnings were made well in advance.

Yet, not much was done. It happened in the world’s most powerful country.

The aftermaths were stunning. Neighboring states were worried about how to manage refugees instead of expressing solidarity.

There are reports of looting and hoarding. Even worse.

The issues were administrative, managerial and political.

Well thought out disaster management plans met the same disaster.

Technology comes into ‘action’.

Internet is flooded with maps, GIS and ‘pre’ and ‘post’ satellite imagery.

Technology might deliver also.

But, if the crisis is human, then?
