Bryan is right. What made Katrina so devistating was simply poor planning and failure of infrastructure.

Bryan,

While I was overseeing cleanup crews in Harrison CO, MS (where Camille hit hardest I think) after Katrina, the locals said they'd take Camille over Katrina any day of the week. Many said they rode Camille out. The same homes that were 20ft under water during the Katrina.

From what I could gather, Camille was so small and compact, that it was very bad a few mile east of the eye but the bad winds tapered off pretty quick. Katrina brought in a surge for miles and miles and miles.

Regardless, I hope they don't get that again but the gulf is prime I think.

I grew up in Biloxi and have friends (parents) that rode out both storms and they said the same thing. Before Katrina they said 'I made it thru Camille...' afterward they said 'never again'. The made it as did their home (2 blocks off beach) but it scared the crap out of em.

Camile's devastation was more localized, but with far worse winds. Katrina had a record-break storm surge due to it's massive size, but wind speeds/damage were much less. But for Katrina, most look at New Orleans as the peak of damage. New Orlean's problems were not the storm surge per se, it was that the levees gave way. The real devastation of Katrina was the MS coastline.

Same thing with David in South Florida--amazing localized wind damage but it was a tiny hurricane for being so powerful, leading to much lower storm surge than expected.
