5 YEARS LATER / HURRICANE KATRINA

Webreport, 2010

From the "About" text: "In the five years since Hurricane Katrina (quickly followed by Hurricane Rita) ravaged the Gulf Coast, USA TODAY has written extensively about the rebuilding efforts there. In this project, we try to sum up where we stand, half a decade after the storms hit. Has life there changed forever? We hope this multimedia project helps answer those and other questions."
In the 5th Katrina anniversary, we also suggest the TV linear report (plus minisite) produced by PBS, an investigation into questionable shootings by the New Orleans Police Department in the wake of the hurricane. Program: FRONTLINE, episode: Law & Disorder, first aired 25 August 2010.
