In the late summer of 2005, Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast, leveling entire cities and leaving others under vast amounts of water. Thousands of Americans were stranded on rooftops and in dangerous makeshift shelters. Stranded in a city submerged, the narrators of "Voices from the Storm" survived the devastation brought on by Hurricane Katrina only to find themselves abandoned - and even victimized - by their own government. These thirteen men and women of New Orleans recount, in astonishing and heartrending detail, the worst natural disaster in American history. "Voices from the Storm" is the second book in "The Voice of Witness Series".
