In Pacayune, Mississippi, I interviewed Tammie Norsworthy who lost her daughter during Hurricane Katrina. A heart wrenching story. They had lived just north of Pascagoula, Mississippi, in Helena. The 12-year-old daughter had cerebral palsey and had gotten sick with pneumonia two weeks before the storm. Her condition continued to deteriorate, and the day before the storm hit she was brought to Pascagoula’s hospital. As the storm approached, they were going to Life Flight the girl to a hospital in Mobile, Alabama — but the winds were too strong, Mrs. Norsworthy relayed. After the hurricane, the electricity was out in the hospital for quite some time and without functioning resperiation equipment, etc., Mrs. Norsworthy’s daughter grew worse. She eventually died on Sept. 25.
