IamA Hurricane Katrina First Responder - It's 10 years later - AMA
I was a FEMA contractor responsible for the ground logistics and management of over 1200 Motor Coaches used in the evacuation of est. 100,000 civilians from the Superdome, NOLA Convention center and other affected areas. I was deployed until December of 2005 with continued support on Transport infrastructure and transit rebuilding and saw NOLA at her worst, and best.

EDIT#1 Thank you for the amazing questions and interest. I have to run, but I will follow up later to anyone I missed.
