Caption: Hurricane Katrina's path. Orange areas were affected by tropical storm force winds and red areas by hurricane force winds. Katrina first made landfall near Miami, Florida on August 24 as a category 1 hurricane. It then moved south into the Gulf of Mexico where it intensified to a category 5 storm. It made landfall in Louisiana on 29 August, as a category 4 storm with sustained winds of 240 Kilometres per hour. Katrina caused immense damage and flooding and has killed over 50 people. Early estimates put the cost of the hurricane at $25 billion, making it the most expensive ever. Hurricanes are enormous rotating storm systems that form over tropical seas.
