Billy begins the show with his family’s story, the night of the flood. Family members died trying to evacuate, helicopters could not lower their baskets because of power lines, then the Cajun Navy arrived. This is the introduction to a discussion about survival, recovery and planning for the future–including the next flood. Billy’s home is one of many that West Street Recovery‘s group of groups is working to rebuild–but there’s so much more, all the way to the legislature and input to federal response to crises like these.
