Thought I would check back in at the New Orleans Times-Picayune to see what types of stories they were writing related to the business aspects of Hurricane Katrina.
What I found was a lot of stories discussing the storm’s impact. This morning’s paper had a story about how a lot of local businesses would like to be involved in the cleanup of the aftermath, but they’re having trouble finding employees to work. Another focused on how the Louis Armstrong International Airport had canceled some of its construction projects because the number of flights in and out of the city had decreased dramatically since the hurricane, forcing it to lay off a number of workers and resulting in a drop in its revenues.
On Wednesday, business editor Charles Crumpley chipped in with a story on how leading business executives from New Orleans are lobbying Congress for post-storm financial help. You can find that story here.
And on Sunday, personal finance writer Mary Judice offered tips on where to find cash related to Hurricane Katrina for those who need money. Her column is here.
