The meteorological history of Hurricane Katrina, an extremely destructive Category 5 hurricane, began on August 23, 2005 when it originated as Tropical Depression Twelve near the Bahamas. The next day, the tropical depression strengthened to a tropical storm, receiving the name Katrina. The storm made landfall on southern Florida as a minimal hurricane. After passing through Florida, Katrina weakened back to a tropical storm; however, the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico allowed it to rapidly intensify to the sixth strongest Atlantic hurricane in history.

Following its landfall, Katrina progressed up through the central United States and finally dissipated near the Great Lakes, where it was absorbed by a cold front. (more...)
