Transcript Katrina Comes to Houston Hurricane Katrina was a tragic natural disaster that almost destroyed the legendary American city of New Orleans. As echoes of this tragedy were heard around the nation and throughout the world, many national cities generously helped to provide shelter and support to victims who evacuated to their cities. Thousands of evacuees fled to Houston as it was the closest metropolis to New Orleans. After the hurricane advanced and the levies in New Orleans broke, more people were brought to Houston once the government became involved. Those who sought refuge in the Superdome of New Orleans found that Reliant Stadium and the Astrodome were substantial substitutes. People, especially those who tattooed social security numbers on their shoulders so that their bodies could be identified if the Superdome collapsed, found new hope in the stadiums of Houston. Many would eventually call Houston their new home. The conditions in Reliant Stadium were not conducive to proper living; however, they were adequate for the refugees' survival. There were also those who did not fill the stadiums but still found spaces in Houston. The generosity of the citizens and businesses of Houston greatly contributed to the survival of evacuees. Many businesses offered spaces to evacuees at reduced rates or even no charge at all. Other citizens through churches and other organizations offered their homes to victims of the hurricane, as temporary shelters. Those young persons affected by the hurricane were received with open arms by educational institutions of Houston. Over 1,300 students from New Orleans were accommodated at the University of Houston, while others found place at Rice University, University of Saint-Thomas and other institutions throughout Houston as well as the state of Texas.
