"The world needs to draw the lessons of Hurricane Katrina"

As Hurricane Ernesto is approaching the US Gulf coast, it is important to recall how preparedness is the key to saving people. The arrival of Hurricane Ernesto coincides with the one year-anniversary of Hurricane Katrina that killed more than a thousand people in New Orleans partly because of a lack of preparedness and emergency transport measures.
