In the months that followed Hurricane Katrina, I had the opportunity to interview several people who had fled New Orleans. None of them planned to return.
I can’t say that I blame them.
But it would be very difficult to leave your home, especially if it’s all you’ve ever known, and move elsewhere to start all over.
I’ve seen coverage of New Orleans and other areas since that storm proclaiming the fact that many of those areas have been slow to recover, particularly the Big Easy.
