Caption: New Orleans and surrounding area before and after Hurricane Katrina made landfall on August 29th, 2005. The image on the right, taken two weeks after landfall, shows areas of the city (they look dark in the image) that were heavily flooded. Hurricane Katrina left a trail of destruction on the Gulf of Mexico coast of the USA, notably in New Orleans. There, the high winds, rain and storm surge caused the low-lying city's flood defences to fail. Around 80% of New Orleans was flooded, with thousands killed. The evacuation of all the city's 1.3 million residents was ordered on September 8th.
