Drowned City : Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans Paperback
by DON BROWN
Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans. On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrinas monstrous winds and surging water overwhelmed the protective levees around low lying New Orleans, Louisiana.
Eighty percent of the city flooded, in some places under twenty feet of water.
Property damages across the Gulf Coast topped 100 billion US dollars.
One thousand eight hundred and thirty three people lost their lives.
The riveting tale of this historic storm and the drowning of an American city is one of selflessness, heroism, and courage - and also of incompetence, racism, and criminality.
Don Browns kinetic art and as it happens narrative
