WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressional Black Caucus Chairman G. K. Butterfield released the following statement to mark the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina:

“Ten years ago Hurricane Katrina made landfall on the Gulf Coast and became one of the worst natural disasters in American history.  Today, we reflect on the more than 1,800 individuals whose lives were lost and the millions of people whose lives were forever changed.  We remember the many valuable lessons that our country learned during the storm’s aftermath and the importance of never forgetting the less fortunate among us.  Since that time there has been an unprecedented growth in the areas hardest hit by the storm and today with Hurricane Katrina on our minds, the Congressional Black Caucus offers our thoughts and prayers to all who lost loved ones ten years ago and are still working to rebuild impacted communities.  We remain committed to our work to bringing jobs and growth back to the Gulf Coast until there is a complete recovery.”
