As students begin a new semester at Louisiana State University (LSU), Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the school's security office takes a new course of action to keep its college community safe from damage from future hurricanes, like Katrina, with the assistance of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The corps is working with the school to create GIS maps to make Louisiana State University a storm disaster-resistant school.
