Item description for Disconnected: A True Hurricane Katrina Story by Cheryl Ory & Belinda Thompson...
No power; no running water; no modern day resources; completely surrounded by water. It was like a third world country in a war zone. The outside world was misled to believe that all 550 people inside the hospital had been evacuated. No one knew they were there. They could hear the helicopters flying overhead and see the rescue attempts nearby at the Superdome. They shined flashlights out the window at night with the hope that someone see them. Thirty-something people would gather and hold hands in prayer with the hope of even a word of rescue. They waited and waited. But no one came.

Katrina and it's wrath-- great read Oct 29, 2007
This book gives a great insight of how others survived the aftermath of Katrina. I live in Metairie and area also affected by Katrina but not as much water. This book gave me a great idea of just how unimaginable life really was after the srorm. Thank goodness for people who cared... These nurses worked when work was not really possible.
