    The effects of Hurricane Katrina on benthic fauna and habitat quality in coastal waters of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, USA, were assessed in October, , 2 months after the hurricane.   Perhaps the longest-lasting impact of Hurricane Katrina was its environmental damage that impacted public health. Significant amounts of industrial waste and raw sewage spilled directly into New Orleans neighborhoods, and oil spills from offshore rigs, coastal refineries, and even corner gas stations also made their way into residential areas and business districts throughout the region.

    By the time Hurricane Gilbert hit Mexico it had changed characteristics. In the Yucatan the storm surge reached 5 meters in height and rainfall averaged mm. By the time Gilbert struck the northern coast of Mexico, the winds had increased to km/h and the storm surge had reached 6 meters. 1. JAMAICA. a. Affected Population and Damage to.

    A spike in vibrio infections in the Gulf Coast region of the United States following Hurricane Katrina, which made landfall in August of , has been attributed, in part, to the increase in the number of susceptible individuals exposed to floodwaters. Storm surge from Hurricane Katrina caused Lake Pontchartrain, a large brackish lake. contaminant concentrations in near shore coastal waters. Specifically, we assessed whether: (1) tem-poral fluctuations of contaminant body burdens at storm impacted sites were correlated with coastal storm events in the Gulf of Mexico and south-east Atlantic coastal regions and (2) whether a predictable pattern of contamination could be ob-.

Hurricane Katrina made landfall off the coast of Louisiana on Aug It hit land as a Category 3 storm with winds reaching speeds as high as miles per hour.

on the Northern Gulf Coast A Killer Hurricane Our Country Will Never Forget. Hurricane Katrina (August ) became a large and extremely powerful hurricane that caused enormous destruction and significant loss of life. It is the costliest hurricane to ever hit the United States, surpassing the record previously held by Hurricane Andrew from On August 27 Katrina strengthened to a category 3 hurricane, with top winds exceeding miles per hour ( km per hour) and a circulation that covered virtually the entire Gulf of Mexico.

By the following afternoon Katrina had become one of the most powerful Atlantic storms on record, with winds in excess of miles per hour ( km per hour).

The Gulf of Mexico (Spanish: Golfo de México) is an ocean basin and a marginal sea of the Atlantic Ocean, largely surrounded by the North American continent. It is bounded on the northeast, north and northwest by the Gulf Coast of the United States, on the southwest and south by the Mexican states of Tamaulipas, Veracruz, Tabasco, Campeche, Yucatan, and Quintana Roo, and on the southeast by.

The impacts of major tropical storms events on coastal waters include sediment resuspension, intense water column mixing, and increased delivery of terrestrial materials into coastal waters. We examined satellite imagery acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) ocean color sensor aboard the Aqua spacecraft following two major hurricane events: Hurricane Katrina.

Hurricane Katrina was a massive hurricane that first struck southern Florida as a Category 1 (on the Saffir-Simpson scale), reached Category 5 in intensity over the Gulf of Mexico and eventually made landfall as a Category 3 storm on Aug on the northern Gulf coast near (Figure 1a; Knabb et al., ).Hurricane Rita attained Category 5 strength over the Gulf of Mexico and exhibited.

An area of disturbed weather over the southwest Gulf of Mexico is forecast to strengthen over the warm waters, potentially impacting the northern Gulf Coast of the U.S. as a tropical storm by the.

Water quality was assessed following Hurricane Katrina in the affected waters of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. Post-landfall water quality was compared to pre-hurricane conditions using indicators assessed by EPA's National Coastal Assessment program and additional indicators of contaminants in water an dpathogens.

Water quality data collected after Hurricane Katrina indicate that the. The Atlantic hurricane season was a well below average Atlantic hurricane season and the first since with no major hurricanes. It was a well below average season for both hurricanes and major hurricanes but it was a slightly above average season for named storms.

It was also the first season since with no storms of at least Category 2 intensity on the Saffir–Simpson hurricane. By that evening, Camille had hit a glancing blow to the island, and exited off Cuba’s northern coast late in the evening, heading north-northwest into the Gulf of Mexico. Into the Gulf, headed north.

Along with atmospheric interactions, Hurricane Bret’s intensity changes were associated with the oceanic conditions in the Gulf of Mexico. Figure 7 shows the SSTs measured by AXBTs deployed during the period of RI and subsequent weakening.

At the beginning of the deepening at UTC 21 August, the hurricane moved over relatively warm waters. We have assessed the environmental impacts of extreme natural events such as Hurricane Katrina (USEPAEngle et al.

) and other major hurricanes (Balthis et al. We have developed new ecological indicators and other diagnostic tools that improve our methods and abilities to assess coastal ecosystems.
