At 5:02 A.M. on August 29, 2005, Power Went Out in the Superdome. Not long after, wind ripped giant white rubber sheets off the roof and sent huge shards of debris flying toward Uptown. Rivulets of rainwater began finding their way down through the ceiling, dripping and pouring into the stands, the mezzanine, and the football field. Without ventilation, the air began to get gamy with the smell of sweat and garbage. The bathrooms stopped working. Many people slept; others waited, mostly in silence.

Baker & Taylor
An account of the devastating destruction of Hurricane Katrina examines pre-existing warning signs and draws on historical records, geological findings, and climatology studies to examine the disturbing increase in powerful storms worldwide.
