'Hurricane on the Bayou' stresses bayou itself
Last updated 3/1/2007 at Noon
Louisiana is about more than just the Big Easy. There’s the jazz, the Mardi Gras parties, the beignets and everything else associated with N’Awlins. Then there’s the bayous, the gators, the Tabasco sauce, and everything else between Lake Charles and Slidell.
The Reuben H. Fleet Science Center’s latest movie, “Hurricane on the Bayou,” includes parts of Hurricane Katrina and the damage it caused, but the focus of the movie is on the bayou itself. What is politically known as a wetland is called a bayou by Cajun folk and sometimes called a swamp outside of Lou’siana.
