Hurricane Katrina: Response and Responsibilities
Hurricane Katrina: Response and Responsibilities
On August 29, 2005, the most destructive and costly natural disaster in the history of the United States of America struck the Gulf Coast, displacing over a million residents. Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath exposed deep problems in the social and political landscape of the USA. A clear divide was visible between those who were able to leave the city, and those who had to remain; between those who received quick and efficient aid, and those who received little or no aid; between black and white, rich and poor, old and young. In this book, scholars, writers, and activists take up the challenge of looking critically at the hurricane and the rifts in American society which it brought to light. They offer careful analysis of social inequalities, detailed criticism of the events following the hurricane, and possible ways of addressing the inequalities which it brought to light.
Waiting....for Hope: A Survivor's Story of Hurricane Katrina
Waiting....for Hope: A Survivor's Story of Hurricane Katrina
My little book is a true story of struggle, prayer, faith, and survival. It tells not only my story, but the stories of family and friends, as we all learned to "bear" this and other storms of life. It is a story of loss, unimaginable; grief, unbearable, and a search for "hope" to help us get through all the tribulations we faced. It is the story of an American city, an American family and is my testimony of my unwavering faith in my God. God bless you, Ginger
Voices from the Storm: The People of New Orleans on Hurricane Katrina and Its Aftermath
Voices from the Storm: The People of New Orleans on Hurricane Katrina and Its Aftermath
Hurricane Katrina inflicted damage on a scale unprecedented in American history, virtually destroying a major city and killing thousands of its citizens. With far too little help from indifferent and incompetent government agencies, the poor bore the brunt of the disaster. The residents of traditionally impoverished and minority communities suffered incalculable losses and endured unimaginable conditions, and the few facilities that did exist to help victims quickly became miserable, dangerous places. Now, the victims of Hurricane Katrina find themselves spread across the United States, far from the homes they left and faced with the prospect of starting a new life. Family members are struggling to secure jobs, homes, schools, and a sense of place in unfamiliar surroundings. Meanwhile, the rebuilding of their former home remains frustrating out of their hands. This bracing read brings readers to the heart of the disaster and its aftermath as those who survived it speak with candor of their lives then and now.
