Hurricane Katrina decimated New Orleans and large swaths of the Gulf Coast eight years ago today. Here's a look back at the historic disaster.
Irene Mackenroth, 69, of Orleans Parish looks at her ruined Mardi Gras gowns. Mackenroth has lived at the same address for 27 years and has made it through 13 floods, but Hurricane Katrina brought floods of six and a half feet into her home after the levees gave way, ruining most of her possessions.
