This paper studies the evolution of communication networks infrastructure in the U.S. Gulf Coast region from late August 2005 when it was affected by Hurricane Katrina to recently. Focus is placed on power supply within the particular planning constraints existing in the area after such a critical event. The discussion is supported by extensive photographic evidences from site surveys performed a few weeks after Hurricane Katrina and more recently in 2008 and 2009.
