Spring Break in Biloxi: Battling mold, months after Katrina

03.29.2006 - Spring Break in Biloxi: Battling mold, months after Katrina:
"This is the first in a series of dispatches from Judy Wang (left), a UC Berkeley third-year double major in molecular and cell biology and psychology. She’s on spring break in Mississippi, helping with Hurricane Katrina relief efforts as part of the campus's Alternative Breaks program, which was created by students five years ago at the Cal Corps Public Service Center. She wrote this dispatch on Sunday, March 26, the second day of her trip to Biloxi"

and later:

"It is painfully obvious that it will take years and years for Biloxi, and the rest of the Gulf Coast, to redevelop and rebuild. People are slowly beginning to come back to Biloxi, but for the most part, ... where Katrina hit the hardest, it is reminiscent of a ghost town."
