Hurricane Katrina

When Hurricane Katrina plowed into Southeast Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama on Monday, Aug. 29, 2005, it caused massive damage. Most importantly, many people did not evacuate and found themselves trapped and in horrible danger. The government on many levels failed these residents.

Southeast Texans opened their hearts, homes and wallets to help in both Louisiana and here at home. Although I didn't cover New Orleans itself, I immediately traveled to the region after landfall to cover Southeast Texans in the area. I was shocked at how little was being done to help the good folks north of New Orleans.

On Sept. 20, 2005 Hurricane Rita threatened Southeast Texas. We began our own evacuation, hit and aftermath. While most national media continued to cover Hurricane Katrina, we had to care for our own folks. Please see Mark-O-Rita.
