This book is a collection of timeline events leading up to
Hurricane Katrina as well as how God has orchestrated each day since.  This Hurricane touched people that you would not imagine.  Healing came to those who lost everything they owned, including loved ones.  Brotherly love abounded toward those in need from strangers all over the world.

 Through my personal journey being named “Katrina” in the
first place, God using me, my talents, and the love our family has for our neighbours … miracles have taken place connecting the
right people to care for those in need.

"The Book"

People from all walks of life affected, all colors, all income levels, all ages, communities flattened, how can they continue to start their lives again?

  Katrina was the costliest storm in United States history - with amounts over $81.2 billion.  The death toll was over 1,836.

From oil spills to damaging storms on the horizon ... the goal of this site will continue to extend a helping hand in many many ways.

Hurricane Katrina ...
10 years later ...

Hurricane Katrina ... was the costliest hurricane, as well as one of the five deadliest, in the history of the United States. Among recorded Atlantic hurricanes, it was the sixth strongest overall.

Katrina was the costliest storm in United States history - with amounts over $81.2 billion.  The death toll was over 1,836. was created 17 years ago as as a place where folks could come and get free computer help and guide them as they choose to design a website for their business or organization.  It then became a refuge and comfort spot where I created a tribute to my Daddy when he passed away.  It was a place to share, to give back to neighbors all over the world who were in need of help.  

I  just so happened to be named "Katrina" and this was my personal site ... little did I know that over 15 billion hits within one day of Hurricane Katrina hitting the coast would come here ... to learn ... to read ... to find help ... to offer help ... and that this website would be used as such to be a blessing to thousands of people all over the globe.

On August 29, 2005, this site became a source of hope and healing for those desperately looking for their loved ones stranded on rooftops and in attics - a means of survival for those who lost everything to the worst natural disaster in American History ... Hurricane Katrina.

We were offered $500,000 for the name - a large charity based organization wanted to take the funds donated by others to capitalize on a major disaster - we refused several times - and we continued to help relocate and rescue over 7,200 families - with nearly 450 families rescued from rooftops and attics - we started an ANGEL TREE - and are still working to help families. You must hear the REST OF THE STORY!

We would like to share our story with you in person to your church or organization!

Curtis and I have prayed for God's guidance in the future of this site, and we feel strongly that Hurricane Katrina has taught many how to love, to give, to appreciate, to bond together with friends and neighbors all over the world.  

Through this site, relationships have been built to last a lifetime.  Encouragement from those with huge hearts have guided those which disaster made life never the same again.
