Comments about Inside Hurricane Katrina: Commemorative Edition DVD:
Having been through some hurricanes I can understand why a lot of people stayed. This report clearly showed that transportation was available for lots of people to leave the area. When someone elects to stay they should accept the responsibility and the consequences. This hurricane was most definitely a wake-up call to those who wait too long. Thanks to all those people/organizations for coming to help.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
