Hurricane Katrina: The Mississippi Story presents the fullest account yet written of the impact of Hurricane Katrina on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Rooted in a wealth of oral histories and other primary sources, it tells the dramatic but underreported story of a people who confronted unprecedented devastation. Katrina destroyed sixty-five thousand homes when its eye wall and powerful northeast quadrant swept a record thirty-foot storm surge across a seventy-five-mile stretch of unprotected Mississippi towns and cities.
