The state of Mississippi suffered catastrophic damages and economic losses due to Hurricane Isaac and Katrina. These damages were caused by the effects of high winds, inland flooding, and storm surge. The housing industry in particular was greatly impacted by these storms, with a total of 316,000 destroyed homes from both storms in just the state of Mississippi. Although evacuation and numerous measures were taken before both hurricanes hit, no amount of preparation could control the damages and losses these hurricanes brought to Mississippi.

Hurricane Isaac, a Category 1 hurricane, with 80 mph winds is said to have an estimated 2.5 billion dollars in total losses, while Hurricane Katrina, a Category 5 Hurricane, with 175 mph winds, caused nearly 108 billion dollars of damages and 1,833 deaths. With such severity of these storms, and although it has been 7 years since Katrina hit, the state of Mississippi is still rebuilding and recovering from the detrimental damages today.
