Airs Sunday, August 30, at 6 p.m. What difference has a decade made?
Ten years ago, Hurricane Katrina swept through Southeast Louisiana, triggering what would become the nation’s costliest disaster.

The storms uprooted residents, while the rest of Louisiana and its neighboring states welcomed them with open arms.

Advocacy Center report

An agency that advocates for people with disabilities in Louisiana has requested a face-to-face meeting with Department of Health and Hospitals to discuss alleged instances of neglect at 16 group homes across the state. The New Orleans-based Advocacy Center released a report last month that documented unsafe and unsanitary conditions at homes for developmentally disabled people.
