Many of the accounts are from nurses who responded to the flood of refugees from New Orleans after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. The City of Houston opened the George R. Brown convention center to the refugees. This collection consists of 5 CDs, 2 DVDs, 2 microcassettes audio tapes, three digital videocassettes, and release forms for some of the speakers.
