One month after the passing of Katrina, the streets of New Orleans are strewn with rubbish and abandoned cars.
The inhabitants have fled the city. Today some return to their homes and often find nothing worth keeping.
Floods of dirty water coming from a score of sewage plants, continue to sweep in the city. It is estimated that 160 000 homes have sustained irreparable damage.
On september the 24th, only a few weeks after Katrina, an other hurricane – Rita – arrived on the coasts of the Gulf of Mexico. And in a few hours, it wiped-out a region located farther west, between Texas and Louisiana.
