katrina-leveeJust as most Americans remember where they were on 9/11, those of us living on the Gulf Coast remember the fear and concern that enveloped our region ten years ago this week. A lady named Katrina changed many of our lives.  In looking back, many Louisianans felt that maybe New Orleans really was a city that care forgot, and the whole Gulf Coast was thrown in for good measure. This human tragedy has haunted the Bayou State over the past decade as even today the rebuilding effort continues.

katrina-prepareThe 10-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina is approaching which will remind millions of one of the worst natural and man-made disasters in American history.  For the most part, hopefully, that killer-storm nightmare is behind all of us.  However, the anniversary should also be a reminder that families should not only prepare for themselves but for those who might be in special need-- senior citizens and people with chronic health conditions.  They are particularly susceptible to higher risks, in the event of a hurricane evacuation.
