Polls: What do you think on Hurricane Katrina’s 10th anniversary?

On Aug. 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina made landfall on the Louisiana Coast. Arguably the worst natural disaster to face a generation of Americans, the category-four storm left more than 1,800 people dead, displaced about 1 million, and caused more than $100 billion in damage.

Hurricane Katrina remembered 10 years later: 'There was little light. Little hope.'
During the dark days after the levees broke, this city sat virtually empty, blackened by the hell and high water that had swept through so violently.

On Friday, former President George W. Bush returned to New Orleans and, 10 years after the historic storm left 80% of the Big Easy covered in flood waters, he declared: “The Crescent City has risen again, and its best days lie ahead.”

As we approach #Katrina10, MSNBC would like to know what you think about how far the nation has come over the last decade.
