The five-year mark, August 29, 2010
The year 2010 has so far delivered to Louisiana a range of events from the Saints Superbowl win to the ongoing BP oil catastrophe, and appropriately, through everything, we are marking the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Every August 29th since the disaster we memorialize those who died in the disaster and its aftermath, as well as celebrate the resilience and the accomplishments of the citizens of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. A few informational links about the subject are included below.
Another recommended new Katrina monograph available in the LaRC: Nursing in the Storm, Voices from Hurricane Katrina, by Denise Danna and Sandra E. Cordray. This includes descriptive material, photographic illustrations and selections from interviews of nurses on duty in area medical facilities during the storm and its aftermath, including Medical Center of Louisiana at New Orleans (Charity and University Hospitals), Lindy Boggs Medical Center, Memorial Medical Center, Pendleton Memorial Methodist Hospital, and Chalmette Medical Center.
