The "post-mortem" on Katrina and the 2005 Hurricane Season is worth the price by itself.
Living in Southeast Florida for over 20 years, I was well prepared for each and every hurricane season because I took weather events very seriously having grown up in upstate NY. There, we had to prepare for extreme weather every winter including blizzards, ice storms and in the summer months severe and damaging thunderstorms and tornado threats.
