On Monday Katrina caused immense damage as it hit Louisiana with 140 miles per hour winds. It also moved into Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, and Florida. They estimated that Katrina killed 110 people but they say that it could rise to more than 200. Crews are working to find shelter for people in need.
