KATRINA: RESPONSE TIMELINE

On August 26, a state of emergency was declared by the White House (see their website for the actual declaration).

"Dr. Max Mayfield, director of the National Hurricane Center, told the Times-Picayune Sunday afternoon that officials with the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Homeland Security, including FEMA Director Mike Brown and Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, listened in on electronic briefings given by his staff in advance of Hurricane Katrina slamming Louisiana and Mississippi--and were advised of the storm’s potential deadly effects."

Bush was also advised of the same issues, the same day, by the same person.
