FRIGHTENING MOMENTS IN SEVILLA KATRINA

The exodus of Lousiana This is a dramatic photo about the exodus, in the state of Louisiana, in the USA. The hurricane Katrina caused a lot of damage and killed a lot of people. The hurricane Katrina arrived at New Orleans last Monday at 3.00 AM, with a devastating strength. One million people left their houses and looked for safe places: hotels, family houses… In this photo, we can see two people in a car with their personal things in the roof-rank and trunk of their cars. They are looking for a safe place. As soon as the hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, the president of the USA travelled to this devastated region. When the president saw this catastrophe, he was stricken and he said: “Oh my God, this is the worst place that I have ever seen.” After that, he hugged the governor of Louisiana.

The incident started early Saturday morning, about 7h30am.While the family was having breakfast the mountain went down. The neighbours heard the noise and went quickly to see what happened and then, they called the police. As soon as the police and the fire-fighters arrived, they started the rescue. They couldn't do anything until the afternoon, when they got the mother and just one son out of the rests of the cave. Unfortunately, the father and the other son didn't have the same luck as the rest of their family, and they were found dead on Sunday afternoon. The survivors are now in hospital, in good health. People who were at the scene said that it was the most frightening moment of their lives:”We loved the family and this is very sad for all of us”
