03/06 - Rita:  The Forgotten Storm

Was the devastation of Rita overshadowed by Katrina?

Hurricane Katrina devastated southeastern Louisiana, but a second killer storm soon followed, ravaging the southwestern section of the state. It was the most intense hurricane on record in the Gulf of Mexico. Local storm surges of 15 to 20 feet obliterated the communities of Holly Beach, Hackberry and Cameron. Lake Charles, Sulphur, Westlake and Vinton also suffered heavy damage. Local officials and experts discuss the storm and recovery in the wake of "Rita: The Forgotten Storm," this month on Louisiana Public Square.

The Panel for March:
Rodney Geyen, Lake Charles City Councilman
Judge Hadley Ward Fontenot, Cameron Parish
Tom Henning, Louisiana Recovery Authority member, Lake Charles
State Senator Willie Mount, Lake Charles

Of note, a documentary, "Hurricane Rita: Southwest Louisiana's Story," from KPLC in Lake Charles is now available on a special 2-disc DVD set. Link.
