That makes it pretty clear, thanks Taco. So where it spreads out, disperses, it's less intense. Fascinating actually.

yes the storm winds itself up and as the windspeed/velocity increases it's like a vacuum and sucking up moisture in the air and starts slinging the rain (bands) off where is starts to disperse. Notice the rain bands on the "dirty" side say at Biloxi Mississippi has much more rain than say Baton Rouge Louisiana being on the "clean" side.

Interesting is the rotation near center of the storm near the eye is faster than the outer bands.

Anyway you can see the difference between the "clean" vs "dirty" side of the storm.

also just 1-more thing, with Katrina as the storm was coming in towards land it pushed all that water up the rivers, bayous and tributaries but as the storm advanced inland the storm started pushing down that water into Lake Ponchatrain and against the levees protecting New Orleans. The levees broke and that's what caused the majority of flooding in New Orleans. Not the hurricane itself but all that water from the broke levees.

And that is what the insurance companies were fighting. Not the damage due to the hurricane but the water damage from the broken levee systems. Most people have insurance that covers hurricane damage but not flood insurance. So for example you have a $200-k house with $300-K damage BUT they only wrote you a check for 20-K for a new roof and repair a fence as that is all that person had insured for due to storm damage. BUT the flooding waters caused the house to flood and ruin the house plus contents. Without flood insurance you were hung with a huge bill to rebuild and many could not afford to do so so that is why people were screaming about insurance coverage not paying.

Freaking Nightmare, this aint over yet. God Bless them all...
