Storm of the Century
Publication Date: 2009-01-01
When a Hurricane Katrina threatens New Orleans, Louisiana, 14-year-old Ricky Thompson and his family must flee the city. Unfortunately, traffic is backed up for miles, and there's no way out. As a last resort, the family takes shelter inside the Superdome, a football stadium turned into a rescue shelter for thousands of residents. Conditions inside the stadium are terrible -- no air conditioning, no working toilets, and hardly any food. Ricky documents the experience on his new digital camera, not knowing that his snapshot could help some survive the storm of the century.
