Katrina Memories

After the Tulane University administration returned to New Orleans, a website was created to document the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Visitors to the site shared their experiences on this message board. To commemorate the fifth anniversary of the hurricane and catastrophic levee failures, we invite you to share your memories again, read memories shared by others and to watch and listen to these audio and video accounts.
