After the Storm

September 2005
Scholastic News -- Edition 4;9/26/2005, Vol. 68 Issue 4, p4
This article reports on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, which affected some areas of Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi on August 29, 2005. The storm brought rain and winds to those areas. It flattened buildings and flooded streets. Although leaders had ordered people to evacuate, many--especially those without cars--stayed. After the hurricane, government officials sent planes and buses to hard-hit areas, to take people away from the flooded streets. Firefighters, soldiers, and volunteers brought food and supplies. In the weeks after the hurricane, many states opened shelters to people left homeless by Katrina. Schools and families from Texas to Maine have welcomed thousands of hurricane survivors into their classrooms and homes.
