Hurricane Katrina, 10 Years Later

 

Katrina 10It has been almost ten years since Hurricane Katrina, one of the largest natural disasters in the history of the US, devastated the Gulf and shook the nation.

In its wake, Katrina left major environmental, social, and economic wreckage throughout the Gulf. A decade later, we have worked hard to rebuild our lives and our communities. However, from climate-fueled sea level rise to the continued disappearance of our natural storm defenses to the displacement of many Gulf residents, our communities are still at risk and our people are still fighting for better lives and livelihoods.

We have not forgotten Hurricane Katrina, and we are sure you have not either.

Throughout this month, Gulf Restoration Network will be working to tell the real story from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita – the lessons we learned, ongoing problems, real progress made and what else must be done to protect and restore our coasts, communities and futures. Will you help us by sharing your story ?

(Even if you were not in the Gulf during the storm, we want to hear from you. We know that Hurricane Katrina and the aftermath of the storm impacted people across this nation.)

Please share your story: How did Hurricane Katrina impact your life? Ten years after the storm, how are you doing?

We will collect these stories and share some of them in upcoming blogs, social media and email.
