This article examines the mediation and remediation of disaster through the examples of hurricanes Katrina and Felix in/and the new media environment. It suggests that disasters must be understood as ongoing and open-ended events embedded within historical, social, cultural, economic and political processes and systems. It concludes that media, policymaking and emergency management practices will be best equipped to engage effectively, and in democratically responsive ways, with disasters and in particular with the needs of those populations most vulnerable to their impacts
