9 years ago today

The hurricane in focus on 29 August 2005 was of course Katrina, one of the most devastating tropical cyclones to affect the US mainland in modern times. Although it had weakened prior to landfall in New Orleans, its impact was devastating. This entry is dedicated to the memory of those lost in that disaster, in New Orleans and along the Gulf Coast.




  1. Hard to believe it's been 9 years already. I had the opportunity to visit there a few years ago and it was unbelievable how much was wiped out by the hurricane.

  2. From "mutualaide": It seems a distant memory and then when I saw the pictures in your post I was brought right back to the anxious feelings FOR the people in New Orleans (and surrounding towns) trying to find a safe place to stay. Nine years. Wow.
