Beyond the human death toll of nearly 2,000 people, high winds and flooding from Hurricane Katrina severely damaged roads and rail lines and would disrupt transportation across a wide swath of the U.S. Gulf Coast, as reflected in this Sept. 5, 2005 edition of Transport Topics.

The massive storm, which displaced thousands of residents and businesses and created a spike in fuel prices, caused more than $100 billion in damage to parts of Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi.
