Hurricane Katrina made landfall on 29 August 2005, near the town of Buras, Louisiana, with sustained winds of more than 125 miles per hour. The accompanying storm surge caused extensive flooding throughout most of the Louisiana coastal zone. In addition, high winds, wind-blown debris, and wind-driven rain damaged a significant number of facilities, both within the coastal zone and farther inland, including many within Baton Rouge.
