Five Years After Katrina

As we all know, Saturday marks the fifth anniversary of the Hurricane Katrina tragedy. The Category 5 hurricane started out as a Category 1 on Sunday, August 28, 2005 at the Gulf of Mexico before making landfall the next day morning, killing over 1,800 people in the Gulf region. The city that bore the brunt of the storm was New Orleans — primarily the cause of a failed levee system.

How about a little music as you walk down (or drive down) U.S. 11 to New Orleans.
