Hurricane Katrina 2nd Anniversary.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
29 August 2007. Lower 9th Ward, New Orleans, Louisiana.
Lieutenant General Russel L. Honore, the army commander who came to New Orleans and took charge during the darkest days following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina tries to answer questions from tearful former resident Valeria Schexnayder. Honore revisits the mainly deserted, still decimated Lower 9th Ward on the Second anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The area remains mostly abandoned and overgrown with grass growing in the streets. President Bush came to town and claimed he could be proud of what local and federal government have achieved in the city. Yet two years after the storm, it is quite clear that local and federal government are failing and have a great deal to do to live up their promises.
