NEW ORLEANS, La. (WPVI) -- Action News Reporter Nydia Han, Executive Producer John Morris and Photographer Nick Morgan spent a week in Louisiana, reporting on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

The storm made landfall on August 29th and the search for victims continued as we arrived in early September.

New Orleans was empty and, at night, completely dark.

Action News went into the neighborhoods that had been abandoned, met and rode with the rescuers who were still trying to account for the missing, and talked to the people who had to flee their homes and were not sure whether they would ever be able to return.

Here are some images from that trip.
