Hurricane Katrina occurred in August 2005 and affected the Gulf region of the USA from Florida to Texas. It was particularly damaging to New Orleans, Louisiana, where old levees failed and caused major flooding. Hurricane Katrina holds the record as one of the five deadliest hurricanes and is the most costly hurricane in the history of the United States. At least 1,836 people died in the actual hurricane and in the subsequent floods, and total property damage was estimated at $81 billion (2005 USD). Following the hurricane, the name "Katrina" was retired from the hurricane naming lists.
