What New Orleans Was Like After Hurricane Katrina


In August 2005, Hurricane Katrina slammed the Gulf Coast of the U.S. Following the hurricane, Inside Edition visited New Orleans hospitals that authorities were forced to flee. Inside Edition reporter Les Trent discovered abandoned rooms in two of the city's hospitals, as well as dangerously high water levels and garbage. Inside Edition was also given special access to film inside what was then known as the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans. The stadium became a refuge for many residents.
