          Hurricane Katrina: The Aftermath

          September 08, 2005

           

           

          “I want to make it my mission to get these folks some answers and help them locate their family members,” says Dr. Phil who flew to Houston to console victims who were devastated by Hurricane Katrina. He saw firsthand the desperation of the victims who have lost everything, even their loved ones. He visited people living in the Houston Astrodome and offered help in finding lost relatives and coping with this difficult time. “My hope is that people will be moved to take action and give what is most needed right now, money,” he explains. “I will never forget what I saw or those I met.”

          Judy and her family lost everything in Mississippi. They’ve traveled 550 miles to live with Judy’s sister in Dallas. There are now 12 people living under one roof, and they don’t know where to go from here.
