It was the storm that devastated the Gulf Coast, changing lives forever.

Hurricane Katrina hit the Mississippi Gulf Coast on Monday, Aug. 29, 2005 — 12 years ago.

Sun Herald executive editor Blake Kaplan joins us to reflect on the Sun Herald’s Pulitzer Prize winning coverage of Hurricane Katrina and what we have learned from the storm 12 years later.
