29 August 2007. Lower 9th Ward, New Orleans, Louisiana.
Second anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Robert Lynn Green Sr and grand daughter Chayana Hurst (4 yrs) sits on the steps of 1826 Tennessee Street in front of his trailer in the Lower 9th Ward. The steps are all that remain of his house after it was deluged by the levee breach just blocks from the steps. Robert lost his mother and grand daughter at the house when they perished in the terrible flooding. He lost hold of his grand daughter in the swirling floods. She was drowned. His mother was not found for 4 months when her skeleton was discovered in what remained of his washed away house. Robert hopes to rebuild. Many residents are struggling to return to the still derelict and decimated Lower 9th Ward.
