‘Prisoners of the stormis’ a riveting account of the critical decisions, harrowing conditions and individual heroism that brewed in the New Orleans City Jail during and after Hurricane Katrina’s deadly assault. ‘Prisoners of the storm’ explores all their stories, from the jail administration’s ill-advised decision not to evacuate the inmates, to a deputy’s heart attack as flood waters rose; from the evacuation of 200 seriously ill patients to the prisoner riots and
escapes; and from a SWAT team’s rescue of stranded personnel to the treacherous swim
through sewage and diesel-contaminated water to retrieve medications and records. While those involved insist they were ‘just doing their jobs’, they did those jobs with
exceptional dedication, courage, and perseverance – working under treacherous and
terrifying conditions, never knowing what new dangers awaited them, or whether their
families weresafe. The book improves that in extraordinary circumstances,
even ordinary people can be heroes.
