August 29, 2005 - The Storm We Always Feared

On August 29, 2005 Hurricane Katrina unleashed her fury leaving at least 1,833 dead.  New Orleans will forever exist as two cities: The one that existed before that date, and the one after. Browse through the extraordinary archive of The Times-Picayune's Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage.

You might also want to read Sheri Fink's Five Days At Memorial for a sense of the horror people experienced and the ineffective response by those who should have been in controlIt's a powerful work of nonfiction.
