Product Overview

Hurricane Katrina - The Storm that Drowned a City will present a minute-by-minute account of the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. NOVA will look at what made the hurricane so deadly and analyzes how, despite technically sophisticated flood and storm defenses and advance disaster relief planning, this event has resulted in destruction on an unprecedented scale for the Gulf Coast region.

Hurricane Katrina - The Storm that Drowned a City will offer eyewitness testimony of what actually happened during the storm, along with state-of-the-art graphic descriptions of the calamity. NOVA will also examine the question of whether storms, like Katrina, are increasing in frequency and becoming more powerful and explore what economic, political, and scientific defenses are available to overcome these events. NOVA will investigate how the long-term ecology of New Orleans and the shrinking wetlands surrounding it steadily increased the city's vulnerability, and will also explain why, despite scientific improvements in the city's flood and storm defense capabilities, the protective levee system ultimately failed.

More than just an engineering story, Hurricane Katrina - The Storm that Drowned a City will investigate why--despite all the knowledge of the peril faced by New Orleans--the city was tragically unprepared when the long-feared disaster finally struck. And finally, NOVA will look to the future and ask the question- is there anything that can be done to restore New Orleans to a habitable and safer city?
