    I couldn't' stop making this comparison..

    inches of rain in new orleans due to hurricane katrina... 18
    inches of rain in mumbai (July 27th).... 37.1

    population of new orleans... 484,674
    population of mumbai.... 12,622,500

    deaths in new orleans within 48 hours of katrina...100
    deaths in mumbai within 48hours of rain.. 37.

    number of people to be evacuated in new orleans... entire city..wohh
    number of people evacuated in mumbai...10,000

    Cases of shooting and violence in new orleans...Countless
    Cases of shooting and violence in mumbai.. NONE

    Time taken for US army to reach new orleans... 48hours
    Time taken for Indian army and navy to reach mumbai...12hours

    status 48hours orleans is still waiting for relief, army and
    status 48hours later..mumbai is back on its feet and is business is as
    usual's most developed nation

    You need to take a look at the land itself. The land in New Orleans (Louisiana area) is really crappy compared to that of Mumbai.

    Here's the biggest difference between the two:
    Mumbai wind gusts: 35-45mph
    Katrina wind gusts: 175+mph.

    I doubt there's a lot of cities that can take the damage that Katrina could dish out.

    nope buddy ... the damage was not mainly due to taht fact ...

    the damage was mainky due to this fact:
    the buildings there are made of plywood ... and cardbard ... they just have a metal structure (that too is very rare)

    in india all the buildings are made of reinforced concrete ...

    Category 5 Hurricane — winds 156 mph and up (135+ kt)
    Catastrophic damage. Concrete power poles damaged. Total failure of non-concrete reinforced roofs. Extensive or total destruction to non-concrete residences and industrial buildings. Some structural damage to concrete structures, especially from large debris, such as cars, large appliances, etc. Extensive glass failure due to impact of flying debris and explosive pressure forces during extreme gusts. Many well-constructed storm shutters ripped from structures. Some fuel storage tanks rupture. Nearly all construction cranes blown down. Air full of very large and heavy projectiles and debris. Shrubs and trees up to 100% defoliated; numerous large trees blown down. Up to 100% of palm fronds bent, twisted, or blown off; numerous crowns blown from palm trees; flooding causes major damage to lower floors of all structures near the shoreline. Massive evacuation of residential areas may be required.

    Katrina was listed as a Category 5 hurricane. I sincerely doubt that even Mumbai is strong enough to withstand a hurricane of that magnitude and return to work in a short period of time.
