Allan Adamczyk ISP 203B – 002 Drost 27 September 2018 Milestone 1 Section 1: The hazard that I will be investigating is Hurricane Katrina or more specifically the effects that Hurricane Katrina had on the city of New Orleans. Hurricanes use convection, the movement of hot and cold air, to create monstrous storms. They begin formation by using hot humid air that rises to the top of the storm. As the air moves closer to the top, it also cools and condenses. When the water vapor condenses, it generates rain as well as heat. This cooling makes the air fall back down to towards the bottom of the storm, where it warms, and the cycle starts again. The rising warm air creates pressure at the top of the hurricane. As the now-cooled air falls down, air from near the ocean’s surface quickly fills the space. This creates a low-pressure zone close to the ocean’s surface. The hurricane mostly affected the Gulf of Mexico, but I will mostly be focused on the coast of Louisiana and the city of New Orleans. The population of New Orleans

    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.
