CNN Reports: Katrina-State of Emergency provides a chronological account of the hurricane through a selection of CNN transcripts and photos documenting all facets of the disaster starting from past studies predicting such a tragedy to the path of the hurricane to the consequences surrounding the flooding and delayed rescue efforts.
The book details events in New Orleans and along the Gulf Coast in the days before Hurricane Katrina made landfall and the subsequent weeks of those communities recovering from its destructive wake. The book includes first-hand accounts from many of the more than 200 CNN anchors, correspondents, and production members dispatched to Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Texas, and Tennessee to cover the aftermath.
CNN will donate all royalties to the American Red Cross Hurricane Katrina Disaster Relief Fund, with AMP matching that donation.

I purchased this book while attending a conference in New Orleans and touring the sites most impacted by the disaster. This is a well-written and thoroughly documented publication. I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting a balanced look at how the local, state and federal government ineptly handled this terrible event. Sadly, we are quicker to send aid to foreign countries than to help our own.
