New Orleans after Hurricane Gustav

    Almost two million residents of the Gulf Coast were evacuated from their homes last week, ahead of Hurricane Gustav, which was threatening the region. Thankfully, this storm did not pack the devastating punch that Hurricane Katrina did three years ago. We talk with NICK SPITZER, host of American Public Media’s American Routes and with MARK SCHLEIFSTEIN, Pulitzer Prize winning reporter with the Times-Picayune. Author of, “Path of Destruction: The Devastation of New Orleans and the Coming Age of Superstorms.”
