  • Effective: Post-Katrina
    How do people feel a year after Katrina?
    The Washington Post: August 21, 2006
    “Nearly one year after Hurricane Katrina punched into the Gulf Coast, much damage remains, both in the shattered homes that litter parts of New Orleans and in the battered reputation of government institutions, a new survey shows.”
    “Only half agreed that the federal government had "learned a lesson from Hurricane Katrina”
    “Although President Bush pledged on Sept. 15 in a nationally televised address from Jackson Square to rebuild New Orleans, 70 percent of those surveyed said most individuals still have not gotten the help they need with housing, health care and restoring their lives.”
    “Eighty-four percent of black respondents said most people affected by Katrina had not gotten the help they need to move on with their lives, and 75 percent said the federal government had not done enough to help state and local officials.”
    “Thirty-one percent said failures in the response to the storm were mostly those of government agencies. But those queried also cited individual officials and leaders (21 percent of respondents) and residents who did not adequately prepare and leave in time (22 percent).”

    Chronicles coverage of the hurricane from Day 1 to Day 5
    Brian Williams shares his memories (Introduction)
    General coverage of the storm as well as a series of personal stories from individuals and families affected by the tragedy
    “And now that it’s been five years, it’s worth taking a look at what’s changed and what hasn’t changed in New Orleans where the damage remains profound” (7:12)
    New Orleans has not been completely forgotten by the media five years later and NBC had accurate and complete coverage of Katrina at the time and after
