As the country copes with the horrific flooding from Hurricane Harvey along the Texas coast, we remember another storm with a now infamous name - Hurricane Katrina. 12 years ago tonight, a dire warning went out from the National Weather Service predicting that the incoming Category 5 hurricane would leave much of the New Orleans area with catastrophic damage and anyone exposed to the elements would be killed. Initially, it was thought that the region had dodged the worst of the damage, that was until the sun rose on a city under water. 1,836 people would not survive Katrina’s wrath, over a million people would be displaced, and the City of New Orleans, and for that matter, America as a whole, would never be the same. We look back on this night 12 years ago and remember those we lost, honour those who jumped into the murky waters to save others, and uplift those who lost everything but their life. We promised never again… perhaps it is time to renew that effort.
