Many communities in the Valley face conditions alarmingly similar to the low income neighborhoods of New Orleans a decade ago. If we don’t take decisive action to address those conditions, and plan for recovery from the damage a major hurricane would cause, we could be doomed to see the tragedy of Katrina play out again in Texas.

The next Katrina?
