A new polls shows most people in the United States believe the government is unprepared for a natural disaster as large, or larger than Hurricane Katrina. The 5th anniversary of the storm is this coming weekend.
The survey was conducted by Pew Research Center and says 6 in 10, about 57% of the country, believe the U.S. is not better prepared.
The poll also finds that nearly 7 in 10 think progress has been made rebuilding New Orleans and the Gulf. People in the South -which includes Gulf Coast states - feel most strongly about it, with 75 percent of them saying progress has been made.
