New Orleans fears new disaster

City still recovering from Hurricane Katrina braces for impact of oil spill.

    The city of New Orleans, on Louisiana's Gulf Coast, is no stranger to disaster.

    In 2005 Hurricane Katrina destroyed large parts of the city and it still has yet to fully recover. 

    Now as the Gulf of Mexico oil spill threatens to devastate the region's wildlife and coastal industries, residents in New Orleans fear they could be facing another calamity.
