On August 29, 2005 Hurricane Katrina struck the United States Gulf Coast. The storm and its tidal action left southern Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama in ruins and 80% of New Orleans underwater. With all the chaos that surrounded the relief efforts, one federal agency stood our as ready and immediately taking action. The United States Coast Guard would make the difference between life and death for hundreds of the endangered. With all the odds against them, the Coast Guard was able to execute one of the largest search and rescue operations in their history. Having lost vital communication and operational support systems to the storm, the Coast Guard none the less was still able to immediately carry out their duties. Only a few short hours after the hurricane's initial passage, Coast Guard Air Station New Orleans and Aviation Training Center, Mobile began dispatching aircraft across the region. As the extent of the disaster became manifest Coast Guard units from across the nation began sending aircraft and crews for support. Over 5,600 Coast Guard personnel participated in the relief efforts. This was the largest single search and rescue effort in Coast Guard history. The Alabama PBS documentary film PARATUS 14:50 tells the story with excellent photography and beautiful sound track.  American Admiralty Books Safety & Privacy Policies   To view the film: http://video.aptv.org/video/2365552604/
