Chris Doherty, who rebuilt on the existing foundation of his destroyed home, cleans his porch next to empty lots of weeds and slabs of destroyed homes along Flood St. in New Orleans, Thursday, Aug. 25, 2011. The Lower 9th Ward, the New Orleans neighborhood, hit the hardest six years ago when Hurricane Katrina slammed into the Gulf Coast, is a sad place where the grasses grow taller than people and street after street is scarred by empty decaying houses, the lives that once played out inside their walls hardly imaginable now.
