ABSTRACT

Current Housing Unit Damage Estimates: Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Wilma   [open pdf - 1MB]

"The Office of the Federal Coordinator for Gulf Coast Rebuilding at the Department of Homeland Security, in cooperation with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Small Business Administration, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development have compiled data to assess the full extent of housing damage due to Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Wilma. Detailed tables on the extent of damage, type of damage, tenure, insurance status, and housing type are provided for Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas combined and individually. Detailed tables are also provided for select parishes in Louisiana (Calcasieu, Cameron, Jefferson, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Tammany, and Vermilion), counties in Mississippi (Hancock, Harrison, and Jackson), and each of Orleans Parish's 14 Planning Districts. Summary damage estimates are provided for the 136 counties across the five states that had 10 or more housing units with damage. Users of these data are advised to review the methodology section. We hope that these data are helpful as states and local communities plan and implement their long-term recovery strategies."
