Hurricanes are not exactly a pretty site for any part of the world, but one in particular stirred up a storm (no pun intended) when it arrived in the southern US. This hurricane was Hurricane Katrina. A category 5 storm, Katrina ruined the coasts and blew harder than most storms, though normal for a storm of that size. The one thing that ruined it all though, was that the levies apart, flooding the streets of New Orleans, LA. In addition, it did not only destroy the city, but George W. Bush's reputation, due to the way he handled the situation.
