10 years after Hurricane Katrina hit the nation’s gulf shores, New Orleans rises even stronger a decade later.
President Obama visited the Mardi Gras capital of the world in the midst of the 10 year anniversary of the devastating hurricane that demolished the whole city of New Orleans. Many areas under significant amounts of water were nearly impossible to survive if not vacated and warned in time, said a local hurricane victim. The amount of people needing to be rescued after the chaotic event was in the highest of numbers of some of the country’s most tragic events, but one of the nation’s top local forces near to home, the U.S. National Guard, was among the most heroic of all saving thousands of helpless victims of Hurricane Katrina. Many saved off of roof-tops of homes and businesses to others with medical problems that needed immediate assistance in the midst of the severe weather crises that left some dangerously stranded at health risk.
The President claimed of how the people of New Orleans and the affected areas of Hurricane Katrina were not only inspiring to him, but inspiring to the United States. The whole country was affected by this incident a decade ago and a lot has been done, but we are not done doing work even 10 years after the strong storm made landfall. There is still plenty of work to do. With the help of friends, families, and residents of the areas, Churches around the world and nation came to help after the catastrophic event took place.
