The name Katrina has been used for three tropical cyclones in the Atlantic Ocean, three tropical cyclones in the Eastern Pacific Ocean and one tropical cyclone in the South Pacific. It was used in the Pacific on the old four-year lists. The name is not to be confused with Karina, which is on the Pacific hurricane lists today. The name was retired in the North Atlantic after the 2005 season for its devastating damage, and was replaced by Katia for the 2011 season.

North Atlantic[edit]

  • Hurricane Katrina (1981) – Minimal hurricane that struck central Cuba in November 1981.
  • Tropical Storm Katrina (1999) – Disorganized and weak tropical storm that caused minor damage throughout areas ravaged by Hurricane Mitch a year prior.
  • Hurricane Katrina (2005) – A powerful Category 5 Major hurricane that devastated the US Gulf Coast. The system made its first landfall near Miami, Florida, as a Category 1 hurricane, then struck near Buras, Louisiana and Long Beach, Mississippi, as a Category 3 hurricane. Katrina caused over US$108 billion in damage and over 1,800 deaths, becoming the 2nd costliest from Harvey, and one of the deadliest natural disasters in U.S. history, resulting in the retirement of the name.
