When Hurricane Rita blew ashore near Sabine Pass, TX on Sept. 24, 2005, she wiped out coastal communities, destroyed homes and businesses and disabled city infrastructures, leaving citizens without water, food, electricity, transportation and medical care. Generous first responders and volunteers in Southeast Texas had worked 18-hour days for almost a month while feeding, housing and clothing thousands of Louisiana's Hurricane Katrina evacuees. In Rita's aftermath, they found themselves largely on their own. "Rita: Honoring Heroes of a Forgotten Storm" puts this forgotten hurricane into historical perspective, from the largest civilian airlift in history to the unprecedented evacuation of 3 million people. It honors those everyday heroes who took extraordinary measures to protect and serve their neighbors.
