On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina roared into the Mississippi Gulf Coast with a 27 foot storm surge which devastated communities 12 miles inland. The city of New Orleans went to bed thinking they had escaped the brunt of the storm, but a man-made catastrophe was waiting for them the next morning. MacGillivray Freeman Films, known for their educational IMAX films, already on site creating a movie to sound the alarm about wetland destruction, was there when the storm hit. Join us on Tuesday, September 1 at 7pm in the UNK Planetarium at Bruner Hall for a free screening of Hurricane on the Bayou. The trailer can be viewed at Hurricane on the Bayou.
