The death toll table is too hard to read

Come along way from when it started, but still needs work. violet/riga (t) 20:07, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

Review by DMurphy[edit]

  • Coverage and factuality: 10
Cited well, if it were any more complete it'd need its own portal.
  • Writing style: 8
Like many other articles written during the event, it's segmented and needs a rewrite in some areas to merge the many facts into coherent paragraphs. One of the few articles suffering from too many facts.
  • Structure: 7
As it says on the talk page, this article is very long and still needs to be split into sub-articles. The Hurricane Katrina timeline and Katrina template could stand to be organized a bit better and perhaps would better serve the article if presented in a non-chronological format with links to all related articles.
  • Aesthetics: 6
This is definitely where the article lacks most. The format of the article differs from section to section, and the TOC needs desperately to be compressed somehow. The infobox at the top of the page is not particularly pleasing or informative, nor are the majority of the pictures. The various diagrams also need to be re-worked for ease of use.
  • Overall: 8
