PRLog - Jun. 7, 2010 - NEW ORLEANS -- The BP Oil Spill is overshadowing most of today's news.   Still the effects of Hurricane Katrina and the levee failures dominate the Gulf as the 5th Anniversary of this nation changing event arrives soon.  August 29th will mark the day that Katrina hit landfall.  The following day the Army Corps of Engineers' levees failed leading to mass death and destruction.  

 Now available in E-Book format, "Diary From the Dome, Reflections on Fear and Privilege During Katrina" is the first and only non-fiction saga of what really took place inside the Superdome during Katrina.  Many of the myths and inaccurate reporting in the days after Katrina are elaborated on, as well as a true story of about 100 mainly white travelers who were secretly shuttled out of the Superdome days prior to the rest of the evacuees being able to leave.
