Last week FEMA announced that 90,000 square miles were affected by Katrina, an area greater than the size of the United Kingdom! This message certainly puts the effects of this devastating storm into perspective.
In one of the early news releases after Katrina hit Louisiana last week one survivor said “This is our tsunami”. My initial reaction was “Oh, come on, you can’t even compare these two”. By now my opinion has changed, however, as I submerged myself more and more in what really happened there.
