Explore visits the Ninth Ward district of New Orleans, where in August 2005 rising waters blasted through a levee in the 17th Street canal. During the chaos that followed, some 2,000 people were killed and $84 billion of damages were incurred. Kay Wilkins of the American Red Cross explains what happened, and shows how people - with help from charities - are working to slowly rebuild. Distributed by TubeMogul.
