Numerous coastal homes were displaced landward or destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Most homes had wind insurance coverage but little or no flood or storm surge coverage in Mississippi. Engineering experts were called in to evaluate the damage and testify whether the damage was due to wind, water, or a combination of both. This presentation will cover a few cases where ethical lines were crossed.
