Katrina 10th Anniversary Remembrance and Resilience
Here at All American Healthcare we remember hurricane Katrina 10 years later and we are proud to live and serve in our Louisiana community.
All American Healthcare was started twelve years ago by Dr. Chip Curtis D.C., an honor graduate from Life University. He is also a graduate of Louisiana State University, with a B.S. in Kinesiology. Dr. Curtis was a Captain in the Army National Guard, as a Black Hawk helicopter pilot for twenty years. He served a tour in Iraq, winning medals for valor and meritorious service. Dr. Curtis grew up in St. Tammany Parish and returned here to practice close to his family. – All American Healthcare New Orleans
In August of 2005, New Orleans and the Gulf Coast were struck by one of the most devastating and costly disasters in U.S. History. Hurricane Katrina and the failure of the federal levee system caused over 80% of the city to flood, and over 1,800 lives were lost.
Ten years later, the city of New Orleans reflects back on the magnitude of the destruction of Katrina. We remember the lives lost, damaged land, destroyed homes and grief of the entire nation, as the existence of this incredible American city was severely threatened.
On this 10-year anniversary, we take a look at where the city stands today and what further progress must be made. We also recognize the changes that sparked as a result of Hurricane Katrina and the efforts of those who have kept the city alive.
Immediately after the storm, the people of New Orleans, as well as individuals and groups from all over the world, planned rebuilding efforts to bring back a city even stronger than before the storm hit.
Since then, the New Orleans has made incredible strides with rebuilding its population, creating new infrastructure, improving institutions, attractions and much more.
While there are still many improvements to be made, New Orleans thrives more than ever as the authentic, historic and diverse cultural destination that locals and visitors cherish. Today New Orleans maintains its reputation as one of the most resilient cities in the world.
