The panel also addresses the role of the Department of Homeland security, effectiveness of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and potential improvements in federal emergency responses to disasters.Co-authors Robert Block and Christopher Cooper also talk about their book Disaster: Hurricane Katrina and the Failure of Homeland Security, published by Times Books. In the book they provided details on the federal government's response to the greatest natural disaster in U.S. history. Following their remarks they answer questions from the audience.Hurricane Katrina was the costliest and one of the deadliest hurricanes in the history of the United States. It was the sixth-strongest Atlantic hurricane ever recorded and the third-strongest landfalling U.S. hurricane ever recorded. Katrina formed in late August during the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season and devastated much of the north-central Gulf Coast of the United States. Katrina's sheer size devastated the Gulf Coast over 100 miles (160 km) away from its center.moreless
