just after Ike and now [en]

One year after Hurricane Ike | The Big Picture: a portrait of the Gulf Coast one year after hurricane Ike in a series of images taken in the same place just after Ike and now. My family in Houston, Texas was hit by Ike and had to flee as they hadn't any power nor water for days (and a baby and two kids). At Christmas 2008, I went to Texas and saw the damages in Kemah —a coast town not far from Galveston — it was impressive, the rebuilding effort was beginning but many homes were still mere heaps of rubbles. Many people were living in front of the rubbles of their former homes in trailers or prefabs.
