Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean was in Raleigh, North Carolina, for the American Meteorological Society's 43rd Conference on Broadcast Meteorology.

Janice moderated a panel of experts in a discussion about Hurricane Katrina, 10 years after the deadly storm devastated parts of the Gulf Coast, killing over 1,800 people and leaving hundreds of thousands homeless.

The panelists included Dr. Mariaelena Bartesaghi, associate professor at the University of South Florida, Robert Ricks, lead forecaster for the National Weather Service in Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Tom Birkland, the William T. Kretzer Professor of Public Policy at North Carolina State University, and Bill Read, former director for the National Hurricane Center and now the tropical expert for KPRC-TV in Houston.

On this important anniversary, the experts reflected on what we learned from the historic storm and what we can do to protect lives in the future.
