Hurricane Katrina's Mardi Gras
Hurricane Katrina's Mardi Gras

Hurricane Katrina was one of the worst recorded disasters to ever hit North America, while its flood devastation wreaked havoc on Louisiana’s beloved city, New Orleans.  The Lower Ninth Ward, an area surrounded by the levies that released the floodwaters, bore the brunt of the storm’s impact. Six months after Katrina, as the city rekindled its spirit with Mardi Gras celebrations, the City of New Orleans continued to neglect the Lower Ninth - flashy costumes and colored beads adorned the French Quarter’s avenues, while the Lower Ninth remained dilapidated, marred with abandoned, sunken houses.
