Hurricanes Katrina & Rita Web Archive
Internet Archive and many individual contributors created a comprehensive list of websites documenting the historic devastation and massive relief effort due to Hurricane Katrina. The sites were crawled between the dates of September 4 - October 17th. This collection, containing more than 25 million searchable documents, will be preserved by Internet Archive with access to historians, researchers, scholars and the general public.

Editor's Note: While useful, the list is hopelessly incomplete and biased toward mainstream media outlets. The number of hurricane-related blogs and blog posts missing from this collection is a real disappointment. Without more comprehensive blog coverage, this archive will fail to reflect the blog community's effort to provide information, aid, and comfort. As someone who participated in getting the information out via blogging, as did many of my blog colleagues, I am very disappointed in this effort. JH
