This article presents author's impression on the aftemath of the Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, Louisiana. He believed that Hurricane Katrina is his most difficult assignment in his 29-year career with the Associated Press. He found it very hard to tell the story of the devastation wrought by the hurricane on the lives of the people in New Orleans. Several photographs are presented that can tell the aftermath of the hurricane better than words can.
