Title: Katrina Causes Toxic Mess on Ground
Url: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4829416
Publisher: National Public Radio (U.S.)
Description: This radio broadcast reports on early post-hurricane surveys suggesting that the hundreds of chemical plants, oil refineries, and other major industrial facilities located near New Orleans survived Hurricane Katrina largely intact. Unfortunately, when floodwaters poured into the city, they may have created a toxic mess from other chemical sources in households and businesses that could take decades to clean up. The clip is 4 minutes and 23 seconds in length.
