Scout Prime, from First Draft, has put together an amazing video regarding the flooding of New Orleans and the aftermath of Katrina. It’s a longish video, but haunting and well worth the watch. Just be prepared with some tissues, you’ll need them.
Scout is at a blogger conference in New Orleans this week, and I’ll try to highlight some more of her work on NOLA as the week goes on, as well as other folks reporting from the area.
I’ve searched for something similar on the other areas in the Gulf Coast region that were devastated by Katrina and Rita, but haven’t come up with any good footage. If anyone knows of a YouTube or a link to something from Mississippi or Texas or Alabama, and some good reporting on how things are going at the moment, I’d sure appreciate a link to it in the comments.
My heart aches after watching this video. Yours will, too.
