New Orleans natives remember Hurricane Katrina 10 years later

About 10,000 people affected by Hurricane Katrina traveled to the Austin area for shelter. The Austin Convention Center housed 5,000 of them.

Now, 10 years after the storm many survivors are celebrating life after Katrina.

"I wouldn't have made it. I would be dead," said Deana Thomas who left her home in New Orleans the morning Hurricane Katrina made landfall.
