Survivors talk about the impact of Hurricane Katrina, 10 years after the historic storm devastated the Gulf Coast.
Early in the morning on August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast of the United States. The tropical depression that became Hurricane Katrina formed over the Bahamas on August 23, 2005, and meteorologists were soon able to warn people in the Gulf Coast states that a major storm was on its way.


By the time Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans early in the morning on Monday, August 29, it had already been raining heavily for hours. Katrina pummeled huge parts of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, but the desperation was most concentrated in New Orleans. In all, Hurricane Katrina killed nearly 2,000 people and affected some 90,000 square miles of the United States.


Hundreds of thousands of people in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama were displaced from their homes, and experts estimate that Katrina caused more than $100 billion in damage.
