On Katrina's Third Anniversary, New Orleans Prepares for Another Hurricane

Hosted by

Tropical Storm Gustav is taking aim at Louisiana and politicians are acting to prevent the worst, a sharp contrast to the Katrina response, which devastated New Orleans and killed more than1500 people. The National Hurricane Center still is predicting that Gustav will hit Tuesday morning as a major Category Three hurricane. The Bush Administration has sent Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff and the FEMA administrator to Baton Rouge to meet with state and local officials. Mark Schleifstein reports on the environment for the Times Picayne, which won two Pulitzer Prizes for its coverage.
