Description
 
The loss of life & extraordinary damage made Katrina the costliest hurricane in U.S. history & one of the 5 deadliest hurricanes to ever strike the U.S. However, without the Nat. Weather Service (NWS) forecasts, warnings, communication, outreach, & education, the impacts & loss of life would have been far greater. This report assessed NWS performance during the event & found the NWS performed exceptionally well in forecasting, warning, communication, preparedness, & post-storm recovery efforts. This report makes 16 recommendations, most of which concern the infrastructure of the NWS such as electrical power, communications, computing systems, & data gathering systems. Illustrations.
