William Fu Fu, 1 Mia Sakai Malhotra English 131 27/04/2010 Writer’s Memo My relationship to New Orleans and Hurricane Katrina is both interest and sympathy for other people. Hurricane Katrina was one of the worse natural disasters. I want to know what is going on in Louisiana, how the government is helping its citizens, and the effects of the hurricane.
