Hurricane Katrina: Ten years later

I went to New Orleans as part of a cross-platform project for ESPN on the 10-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. I produced six videos for this project, including these three.

A symbolic statue

Hurricane Katrina destroyed much of New Orleans, but a statue of Jesus Christ in Jackson Square was only lightly damaged. Ten years after the storm, the statue will finally be repaired. Wright Thompson reports.
