Rebuilding your states infrastructure each time it is damaged by storms makes your state a real storm chaser. Don't plan ahead and build a resilient infrastructure. Wait for the next big one to rip your state apart then go begging for money to rebuild.
I'm putting together a side by side of every storm I can find documented online in the different states websites and in archive websites.
It's important to compare past management to find reoccurring issues.
This is a page that will be updated a couple of times each year to show comparison data between storm management teams. Currently the only data collected to date is Road2LA and LouisianaRecoveryAuthroity but much is not linked or removed from the states servers.

Can you name 3 website addresses and disaster recovery plans off the top of your head?
Katrina and Rita: Road Home Program www.road2la.org
Katrina, Rita, Gustav, Ike: LRA Louisiana Recovery Authority http://www.louisianarecoveryauthority.org/
Created in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita in 2005, the Louisiana Recovery Authority (LRA) is the coordinating and planning body leading the most extensive rebuilding effort in American history. The central point for hurricane recovery in Louisiana, the LRA works closely with the Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP) and partners with state and federal agencies to oversee more than $20 billion worth of programs, speed the pace of rebuilding, remove hurdles and red tape and ensure that Louisiana recovers safer and stronger than before.
Do you know the next one?
