Rapes post-Katrina

Reports of rape in and around New Orleans in the crisis following Hurricane Katrina are conflicting. It was originally reported that rapes and murders during those dark and chaotic days numbered in the hundreds. Then it was reported that those were just rumors.

People at the New Orleans Rape Crisis Center have their own opinion. In a public service announcement, a well known New Orleans resident tells her story.
“Hi. My name is Charmaine Neville. I was in New Orleans at a school after Hurricane Katrina and I was raped. I know many more women were raped and are afraid to talk about it.”
