Under the Superdome

Subject

Approximately 100,000 residents of New Orleans could not evacuate before the storm hit. Over 20,000 people took shelter in the Superdome. The structure began to fall apart after the first night. The military arrived to evacuate them a few days after the storm began. Meanwhile, they did not have enough medical supplies, food, clean water, or toilets.
