Nobody Cares About Us

Three days after Hurricane Isaac struck the Gulf Coast, we traveled to Jean Lafitte, Louisiana in Jefferson Parish to survey the wind and water damage. While there, we crossed paths with numerous residents who felt betrayed by the fact their town was left outside the levee system built by the Army Corps of Engineers to protect New Orleans. Many residents were also frustrated by the fact that desperately needed resources such as food, ice, water and electricity was slow in reaching their community.
