I am a student at Elon University and I am working on a project about radio during Hurricane Katrina. I was wondering if anyone could tell me about their use of radio during the hurricane. Was there any specific broadcast that made an impression on you? Did anyone called the radio station during the Hurricane? All feedback is appreciated!

Well, up here in BR, we were on the edge of the storm, but had no power for several days. We tuned into WJBO that Monday morning and first heard about the levees breaking.

Hi,

I lived through Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. The radio proved invaluable during the whole crises. I have to hand it to WWL, it was the only radio station broadcasting on several different bandwidths. I heard about the flooding and crises through WWL. My area Uptown didn't get any flooding, but I left several days afterwards because I had no water, electricity, AC., fire/police.
