The Ninth Ward (or 9th Ward) is a distinctive region of New Orleans, Louisiana that is located in the easternmost downriver portion of the city. Much of the 9th Ward on both sides of the Industrial Canal experienced catastrophic flooding in Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Two years after the Katrina levee disaster, reconstruction and recovery continues as a slow struggle. This video takes us to the 9th Ward to view the aftermath, 2 years later, of this life-changing event.
