washingtonpost Berylynn Gettridge and her father got out of New Orleans before the hurricane made landfall, but her husband, Jules, had stayed put. Two months went by, and Berylynn had no news of him. Then a relative’s phone call brought her word of what happened: Jules had remained at home until his couch began to float. Besieged by rising waters, he found his way to the Superdome and then evacuated, to Baton Rouge and then Chicago. By February of 2006, all three were together. Today, Berylynn stands alone on the front porch of her New Orleans home. Her husband died two years ago, about six years after her father died.

washingtonpost On March 3, 2006, Mary Burns wore a protest sign at the spot where a canal levee failed in Lakeview, pushing water into the low-lying New Orleans neighborhood. A congressional delegation was scheduled to stop by the spot, too. “Louisiana has the best politicians that money can buy,” Mary said. Today, she remains in her Metairie, La., home, undamaged on the other side of the canal that ruptured in 2005.

washingtonpost We have photos and video on our website documenting how former New Orleans residents have changed in the 10 years since Hurricane Katrina.
When Jock Piernas returned to Pass Christian, Miss., on the day after the Hurricane Katrina blew ashore, he found his cousin laughing at just how ridiculously jumbled the landscape was. Jock no longer had a suitable roof over his head, so he and his brother hung blue tarps in the yard and camped out in the unforgiving heat. “The love I have for this place is unexplainable,” Jock recalled more than two weeks later. “If another [storm] comes, I still intend to come back.” Jock still lives in Pass Christian today.
