Katrina update

Daryl Malek-Wiley

Sierra Club

Reporting from New Orleans


Daryl Malek-Wiley has been with the Sierra Club for years, working from the New Orleans and Baton Rouge offices. Daryl gave us a field report within days of the Katrina disaster, focusing on the flooding, the contamination and the outlook at that time. Meanwhile, he did not even know if his own home was still standing.


He returned, after months away, to check out what was happening in his neighborhood. Since he's been back, he has focused his expertise on two neighborhoods dramatically impacted by the storm.
