August 28, 2005 is a day that stands out as marking one of the worst natural disaster ever experienced in the United States. Television and Internet viewers watched as the city of New Orleans, LA was overcome with the force of Hurricane Katrina. Over 1,000 people were killed, more than $100 billion in damage was done and so many people have struggled to get back to life as they knew it pre-Katrina.
There is a lot that has already been written about Katrina, the disaster response, the mistakes made, the stories of people’s survival, the missteps in the ensuing 10 years of recovery and about what still lays ahead for those impacted. We aren’t going to say anything new here that hasn’t already been said. Instead we’ve collected a number of links to articles that provide different views and stories on what happened, what is happening and what should happen moving forward to enable recovery from this disaster.
