Running head: HURRICANE KATRINA 1 Hurricane Katrina: Post Disaster Student’s Name Institutional Affiliation Hurricane Katrina: Post Disaster Hurricanes represents some of the natural disasters that have devastating effects to the society. In one recent case involving hurricane, New Orleans was affected. The community of this state has responded by setting up special needs shelters for those with medical needs. Approximately 1.8 million people in New Orleans were affected by the storm and there was a need for urgent evacuation. Another response that was documented following this disaster was the conduction of a survey at all hospitals, emergency rooms, and local clinical sites in the city to ascertain the possibility of dealing with infectious diseases (Wildavsky, 2017). Due to the increment of water borne diseases such as diarrhea, residents started taking precautionary measures such as washing of hands.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
