A Story of Life Inside a Hospital During Hurricane Katrina: Bravo to Pro Publica and The New York Times

katrina hospital

A truly ground-breaking news story appeared in the Times this weekend. Done in cooperation with the non-profit nvestigative journalism group Pro Publica, and reported by A.C. Thompson and Sheri Fink, the piece describes the frenzied and painful struggle inside of a New Orleans hospital during Katrina as staff dealt with seriously ill patients.

One of the most amazing pieces of journalism about catastrophe I have ever read. And so painful to read that I had to struggle to finish it.

A must read.
