Tell me what you know about Hurricane Katrina

I'm writing a paper on Katrina and how the government royally ****ed everything from prevention to relief efforts up. Just looking for some first-hand knowledge if any of you have it.

Definitely glad I live in Cali.

FEMA had like all the shitt the people needed but it was just laying at the warehouse until like 3 months afterwards CNN news reporters found them but it was too late so they donated all the stuff to charity. This info is from CNN.

The US Government didnt screw up. Governor Kathleen Blanco screwed up. The federal government can not step into action until the state government declares a state of emergency. She did not do that until about 3 days after Hurricane Katrina came through New Orleans. Once the National Guard was let in General Honere did a great job of aid.

Also, I doubt this is documented anywhere but with all the looting and crime in New Orleans days after the hurricane, some of the National Guard troops were sent to the city [U]without[U] ammo. How do I know this? A friend of mine that I work with went to New Orleans to assist in the rescue efforts. He had to give the National Guard troops from Arkansas ammo.
