A chronological narrative of one of the most destructive storms in US history.
Hurricane Katrina was one of the worst hurricanes the United States has ever experienced. At the Tenth Anniversary of this tragic event this child-friendly account investigates the science behind the storm. A time line of events describes the lead-up to the hurricane, the subsequent floods and subsiding waters, and the rescue operations. Heroes and survivors tell their own tales of the cleanup and rebuilding efforts, and discuss their hopes for the future.
