    Hurricane Katrina was one of the most devastating hurricanes ever

    Explanation:

    Hurricane Katrina had several environmental impacts.

    contaminated floodwater - sources say that about 7  million of oil was spilled in the Gulf Coast, including Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. This is scary because oil on top of the water would prevent or limit the amount of sunshine coming into the sea, affecting the ocean's ecosystemFlooded Federal-marked sites - some sites were already for demolition because of health and pollution issues. Since these were flooded, whatever toxic materials in the buildings were also scatteredContaminated Groundwater - because of the above, including the many household chemicals that were swept by the flooding, the groundwater is sure to be contaminated. It will be more difficult to treat a chemically polluted water.

    These are just some of the environmental effects of Katrina. It did not, however, cause the production of toxic materials. It merely exacerbated the problem. What can be done is to ensure that policies are in place to control the storage of these toxic wastes so that even if flooded, it will not seep into the waters or the ground causing health issues.

    Hurricane Katrina would not have caused early onset of spring. The damaging winds/rains of the hurricane would have caused a change in marine ecosystems and habitats since the heavy winds/rain and storm surge eroded beaches, took down trees, and flooded out areas. As a result, animal migration also changed since some habitats that animals would normally migrate to were destroyed and no longer existed. The early onset of spring (aka. seasonal change) is not driven by individual weather systems.
