How far did the Katrina-devastated cities recover by now?

One year has passed after the Hurricane Katrina struck and ravaged the United States’ Gulf Coast — the city of New Orleans, Louisiana.

These two pairs of photographs of New Orleans bridge just after Hurricane Katrina and today tell the story.

Cars cross over New Orleans’ Industrial Canal to the city’s Lower Ninth Ward in July 2006.
