Katrina: The Long Road to Recovery

October 26, 2005

It has been nearly two months since Hurricane Katrina ravaged Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.

While the pictures on television showed the great destruction, Insurance Journal wanted to get to the heart of the matter. Are independent agents and claims adjusters meeting the needs of policyholders in the region? How are businessowners rebuilding their lives and getting back on their feet? How is the insurance industry doing its job in this time of need?

This week, Insurance Journal Online Editor Dave Thomas and New Media Producer Chad Reese are in the Gulf Coast region talking to disaster victims and getting a first-hand look at the damage. While it has been two months since the killer storm hit, the two are finding scenes of destruction and shattered lives that have never been witnessed before in U.S. history.

Look for video, interviews, and more with Katrina survivors and businessowners in the coming weeks as Thomas and Reese visit Katrina’s Long Road to Recovery.
