Elizabeth Weaver sits on the back of a truck outside her flood damaged home in LouisianaBy Kathy Finn NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - Of all the areas near New Orleans blasted by Hurricane Katrina, none was harder hit than St. Bernard Parish, a low-lying coastal stretch southeast of the city, once known for its small fishing villages and thriving seafood industry. The full force of Katrina's 125-mile-an-hour winds and a 20-foot-high wall of water slammed the parish in August 2005, killing 127 residents and all but destroying its 25,000 homes. Considering the devastation, St. Bernard has made an impressive recovery: its population has grown to 44,000, about two-thirds of its 2005 size, according to a 2014 census estimate, and housing units now total 17,000. . . more
