Read Adam Lynch's in-depth analysis of how the inadequate response to Hurricane Katrina on Mississippi's Gulf Coast and in New Orleans—and the fact that so many people still leave in trailers as another massive storm looms—has dramatically changed the face of politics in the U.S. and in the South.

Also see the JFP's KatrinaBlog of archived coverage of Hurricane Katrina and her aftermath, as well as "Disaster in the Making," the Oct. 7, 2004, JFP cover story by Jon Elliston that warned that the federal government was not prepared for a hurricane like Katrina.
