Remembering Hurricane Katrina

Today is the 5-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, and just 1 week ago, our expedition team was down on the Mississippi coast talking with Katrina survivors about their stories.  In a previous entry, I described part of Daryl Arnold’s story of how his family survived the storm by tying his boat to a tree and his acts of saving what he could from his property and the surrounding areas in the aftermath of the disaster.

In the video below, Daryl talks with us about the first days after Katrina and the love for the area that has kept him in Pearlington, Mississippi all these years despite not having a permanent home.

We were very moved by Daryl’s story of survival and resilience in the face of unimaginable adversity, and thought it was fitting to highlight his story today.  More on our visit with Daryl soon.
