We watch the HBO series Treme and these scenes (and the people affected by them) are portrayed well. Cannot imagine what that whole city has gone through. My hubby was there for 4 days, pulling folks out of flooded houses and loading them into boats, then into helicopter transports. Then he worked with the displaced folks sent to the old Air Force base in San Antonio for a few months. He came back a very changed man - aged a lot in those few months. But nothing like they endured...
Wow, such devastation. My husband and I went to Galveston and in 2008 Hurricane Ike hit. It seems both places are still trying to recover.
The damage was so devasting that it will take years to recover...thanks for showing the work left to be done!
It is very sad to see such devastation... I am sorry...
It's horrid, and now it looks as if they'll be flooded, soon.
Heartbreaking. Thank you for giving me a better appreciation of the continuing situation there. Why don't we see images like this in the news?!? Oh well, yours are better, anyway.
Those oaks have a lesson for us.Powerful post.
I grew up in New Orleans. Haven't been back since before Katrina. Thanks for sharing.
