Hurricane Katrina killed at least 50 people, left hundreds of thousands homeless, and 2 million without power in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi. In the aftermath of the storm, looting, shootings, and attempted carjackings have been reported in New Orleans as tensions and floodwaters rise due to a broken levee.

After seeing the destruction, I am quite happy living in earthquake zone. True, an earthquake strikes without warning but the moments of terror are brief, a few seconds, in comparison to a hurricane which can unleash hours of devastation on its victims. FEMA is going to have their hands full for many months to come after this storm, and sadly there are more storms on their way. Now, New Orleans is mostly underwater and it may take years to rebuild the city.
