Post-Katrina recovery


An interesting article in the current issue of Disasters reports on a repeat photography study that investigated several counties affected by Hurricane Katrina. The repeat photography study attempts to document, for a representative sample of properties, the continued pace of recovery in rebuilding structures. It is an interesting read and it included the graphic above. The upshot is that a little more than 60% of their observations had "fully recovered," that is rebuilt, by 2008.

That is cool.
