Hurricane Katrina vs. the computers | | CNET

CNET "As Hurricane Katrina hit shore, high technology was being used to provide everything from detailed satellite photos to blogs written by those who refused to evacuate the storm's path.

Many bloggers marveled at the technological advances that have been able to predict Katrina's force and, at least in theory, save lives by encouraging evacuations of certain areas. For all their benefits, however, these tools also illustrate technology's limitations: No matter what it can tell you about a storm, it can't stop one."
