New Orleans, Louisiana native Ellen DeGeneres fought back tears as she
introduced "Shelter From The Storm U.S." telethon on Sept. 9 by
recalling an emotional chat she had with her cousin, who was caught up in the
eye of Hurricane Katrina.
Greg MacGillivray's Hurricane on the Bayou offers images of the natural beauty of New Orleans, as well as footage of the devastation the city suffered after Hurricane Katrina. The soundtrack is full of some of the most famous names in the city's rich musical history, and the film is narrated by Meryl Streep.
