Caption: Hurricane Katrina damage to a petrol station in Long Beach, Mississippi, USA. Long Beach is on the Gulf of Mexico coast, which bore the brunt of the category four hurricane when it hit on 29th August 2005. It left a huge trail of damage, most notably in New Orleans. There, failure of the levee flood defences meant that around 80% of the low-lying port city was flooded. Many hundreds lost their lives. Katrina was thought to have been the most costly natural disaster in US history at the time.
