Hurricane Katrina: The Storm that Drowned a City
On August 29th, 2005, Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast, killing at least 1,300, destroying over 600,000 houses, and turning downtown New Orleans into an uninhabitable swamp.

In a compelling hour-by-hour reconstruction of the ferocious storm, NOVA exposes crucial failures in preparation and engineering that led to the worst disaster in U.S. history. Using astonishing storm footage, suspenseful eyewitness testimony, and a penetrating analysis of what went wrong, viewers relive the storm through the eyes of survivors and the stories of top engineers, hurricane experts, and emergency officials as they grappled with the arrival of the storm and its traumatic aftermath.

Witness nature's fury first-hand as hurricanes crash into the Gulf coast. Join scientist Hugh Willoughby as he flies into the eye of Hurricane Gilbert, then hear first-hand accounts from survivors of Hurricane Camille, the most devastating storm ever to strike the United States.
