Hurricane Katrina - August 23rd, 2005

In 2005, the worst hurricane to ever hit the Gulf Coast was one of the five deadliest hurricanes to ever touch US soil in its entire history. It started in the Bahamas, and built up power and speed due to the perfect conditions left over from subsequent storms and depressions.

What everyone thought would just be a tropical storm gained more strength and rose quickly to a Category five hurricane, reaching speeds up to 175 miles per hour.
