As Katrina roars on shore, water rises near the Jackley's waterfront home. The water breaks through the front door and begins to flood the house. As the water rises, Jackley sees other homes in the area floating away. With no way out now, he is forced to wait out the storm, which finally abates. The water recedes slowly, but there is floating debris everywhere. The day after Katrina, Kennard surveys the changed landscape. In the days following, he is able to get word to his wife that he is safe.
This was an interesting story of a couple who survived Hurricane Katrina. The wife left and the husband stayed home & weathered the storm. As usual, Jim Cantore is an excellent narrator who brings the perfect balance of tone. If you enjoy weather related tales, you will enjoy this one. The couple were very fortunate to survive.
