Description

As New Orleans marks the 10th anniversary of Katrina this week, many who called the city home in August 2005 will be absent. Tens of thousands swapped one of the nation’s most distinctive and historic cities for the car-centric urban sprawl and homogenous modern suburbs of a metro area of six million people that is today about five times larger than greater New Orleans. Estimates vary, but of the 250,000-odd evacuees who arrived in Houston after the storm, up to 100,000 likely stayed permanently. http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/aug/25/new-orleans-west-houston-hurricane-katrina http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com
