In August 2005, Hurricane Katrina devastated St. Bernard Parish, located east of New Orleans, with high winds, heavy rains, and flooding due to failure of levees surrounding the parish. SGH evaluated the parish's schools and municipal buildings, including fire and public works facilities to identify and quantify damage caused by winds, flooding, and rain to assist the parish in recovering reconstruction funds from its insurers.
