Driving through the Lower Ninth Ward

Lower Ninth Ward

So glad I did not take the bus and walk to my volunteer site. This region was severely damaged by Katrina. My Uber driver was actually living in this area before Katrina hit.

People that she knew who didn’t evacuate drowned in their homes. Her brother was rescued from a rooftop.

This town is pretty close to being a ghost town.

Again, I’m glad I didn’t walk to this location. I looked it up on Google Maps yesterday and the area looked weird. I just saw a bunch of empty land. Turns out that’s where homes used to be.
