The Katrina Experience

Tim's Island

What is IndiePix On-Demand?

On August 29, 2005, the worst natural disaster in U.S. history hit the Gulf Coast region. Sixteen people, seven dogs and eight cats took shelter in Tim's loft in an old dairy in New Orleans. When the force of Hurricane Katrina breached the levees, they found themselves surrounded by eight feet of water. With a clear view of people stranded on the elevated I-10 for days - and access to news reports of the dire circumstances unfolding at the super dome - they have to find a way to survive. A wry study of group behavior as Tim's houseguests cope with survival.
