    I know today is the 28th






    Katrina anniversary: Governor sees improvement and zeroes in on recovery goals

    Chris Miller Reporting

    It's the eve of the fourth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. While many are pausing to look back on what has happened in the past four year, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is looking ahead.

    "I think we're making progress," said the governor during a trip to New Orleans.

    Governor Bobby Jindal talks about the 4th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina:
    Listen:




    Governor Jindal says among the things he sees as critical to ensuring continued recovery are getting FEMA to come up on its estimate of damage to Charity hospital, and getting a commitment from the federal government on restoring Louisiana's coast. Otherwise, he says the people of southeast Louisiana are making the recovery go.

    "Our people are strong, resilient, generous," said Jindal. "They want to come home. They love New Orleans, they love southeast Louisiana, and against many odds and many challenges, they have made the choice to come back here and raise their families here."

    Jindal said he knows the New Orleans area couldn't have made it this far without many determined individuals.

    I'm glad things are improving. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to go out to the 9th ward again though.
