Ten years ago on Aug. 29, Hurricane Katrina, a Category 3 storm, slammed into the Gulf Coast states causing massive destruction from Florida to Texas, with New Orleans taking the brunt of the blow. The Baltimore Sun photo staff was there from the beginning to document the devastation with photographers in New Orleans, Mississippi and Texas. Ten years later we take a look back at the images they captured and the impact this deadly storm had on the region.
