One year on from the day Katrina hit the gulf coast of America, and there citizens of New Orleans are angry at the slow progress at rebuilding their city.
Channel 4's Morning Report spoke to New Orleans blogger Ashley Morris, college professor and long time resident of the city, who is angry about the city's failure to recover faster.
Many parts of the city have no power or water. "You go through parts and litteraly, you can't tell that the hurricane - and the resulting flood more importantly for New Orleans - you can't tell that wasn't three days ago," he says. "The federal government has utterlly and totally abandoned us."
He's also angry about how other Americans view New Orleans. "Over eighty per cent of the coffee in the United States comes through the port of New Orleans. And a lot of people didn't care about New Orleans until they couldn't get their coffee."
New Orleans, he says, is like Hiroshima. The difference, he says, is that Hiroshima has been rebuilt. New Orleans is still waiting.
