We were appalled at how little help these people have recieved. I would have assumed our governments would have done more to help. Shame on us for not helping more.

The 9th ward has not changed. The houses that are still standing show the flood line. Very sad. You can almost feel the flood.

Try not to take a tour of this place, with any company. It's BAD FORM. It is a residential area that was seriously hit by Hurricane Katrina. The locals don't like tourists... just don't travel there if you even want to. Even IF your thinking...More

All of the culture and charm was forever changed with Katrina. Many structures remain abandoned. Some have been repaired but the culture of the place has been replace with poverty and despair. So depressing when one reflects on what was once here in the neighborhoods....More
