This article focuses on the effect of Hurricane Katrina on the lives of people living in small communities in New Orleans, Louisiana. Local planners say that the number one problem in rural and small towns, as in more populated areas, is providing temporary and permanent housing for residents. Because much of the metropolitan area is economically connected to New Orleans, it shares some of the city's problems. As plans and opinions on the rebuilding of New Orleans abound, many planners fear for the future of less well-known, but just as devastated, areas.
