Update Note: 9/11/2014 I did not pick up the guy in the middle of the storm because what he was looking for was right down the street. I had walking pneumonia and in a shady city with a lot of expensive gear and 30 gallons of fuel sitting in the back seat. For those of you complaining about why I did not pick the guy up, I ask why did the Mayor not order the evacuation sooner? The same mayor, Nagin who this week began serving a 10-year prison sentence, following his conviction in February on 20 criminal counts! Why did I give the second guy a ride? Because, I had already filled up my truck with the fuel cans, gave away most of my survival supplies to the police at the airport and had all my stuff packed up and ready to drive to Houston and go home. AND he did not have far to go and knew exactly where he needed to go. And he had a puppy with him and I don't care what race you are, if you are risking your life to save you're pet, that wins points for me. REMEMBER, after the storm the next day when I knew I was going to Houston that night, I gave away the several empty fuel can's, weeks worth of supply of food and 10 gallons of bottle water that were also in the truck and had room in the vehicle for the man and his dog. Don't call me a racist, I'm the only one that has told the truth to what really happened in NOLA without it being political.
The only independent video production that documents Hurricane Katrina from both sides of the eye as the storm devastated the United States Gulf Coast.
Filmed in Miami, FL at Katrina's first land fall and in the air with the NOAA Hurricane Hunters, we chart Katrina's path towards the record breaking landfall.
The footage continues in New Orleans, LA prior to Katrina to document the evacuation of the region. As the storm nears the Gulf Coast, it also continues in Biloxi, MS before the record breaking storm surge destroys the coast.
We bring you through the storm and after the storm for an in-depth look at what was really happening 24 hours after Katrina in New Orleans.
This production was filmed and produced by the videographers who were on the ground and in the middle of Katrina the storm and storm surge came on shore on the morning of 08/29/2005.
