Case Examples: Hurricanes
On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina made landfall near Buras, LA, causing catastrophic damage in southern Louisiana and Mississippi. To reconstruct weather conditions during hurricanes like Katrina, we often rely on NOAA weather data, such as Doppler radar animation from the National Weather Service (left image), post-storm wind speed analyses from the Hurricane Research Division (middle image) and satellite imagery from University of Wisconsin (right image).
