Emergency Response Comparing Katrina and Ida Reactions
Wyatt, K. (2021). Emergency Response: Comparing Katrina and Ida Reactions. American Military University: Edge.
The author compares the strength, damage, and casualties of Hurricanes Ida and Katrina in Louisiana, noting that Hurricane Ida was stronger than Hurricane Katrina, but that warnings up to five days in advance, levees and flood walls, an overnight curfew, and communicating with those affected by social media mitigated Hurricane Ida’s impacts. The author recommends proactive measures such as enhanced training, communication, and education to prevent severe effects of future storms.
