Two years after the onslaught of Hurricane Katrina, many New Orleans residents are demolishing their homes. But others are trying to salvage as much as they can, hoping to reuse it later. Elizabeth Wynne Johnson of Northwest News Network reports.

Also, Noah Adams is in Hancock County, Mississippi, which was hit by the 28-foot storm surge caused by Hurricane Katrina. He gives us a peek at a piece focusing on the county's Emergency Operations Center, which is struggling to provide services to residents.
