Hurricane Katrina Damage
This past weekend I was in New Orleans and was able to go see alot of the damage from Hurricane Katrina. It was really neat to be able to see it but it was sooo sad. We also went to the Ninth Ward where most of the damage took place. They marked every house with an X and each X had a number on it of how many people they found dead in that house. So Sad! There was neighborhood after neighborhood that was completely empty. There were houses occasionally that was starting to get fixed up but most of them had windows busted out and doors were just swung open. There are still so many people who haven't gotten the money yet to fix their home. But at the same time, there are many that won't be returning. They said that the hurricane itself wasn't that bad, but it was when the levy's broke that caused most of the damage.
