This work examines the potential value of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission "Katrina order" and discusses benefits and practicality of technology alternatives. The analysis is based on the effects of 2008 hurricanes Dolly, Gustav, and Ike through extensive supportive photographic evidence from on-site surveys. This information is compared with Hurricane Katrina's data. The analysis seems to indicate that the "Katrina Order" may not address some important issues, and that other technical approaches may provide a better solution.
