Go to CNN.com and click on the link to the video "Screams for Help" about the situation following hurricane Katrina. In it Jeanne Meserve, a CNN reporter, has been in New Orleans reporting on the devastation. She is on the phone, so it's not really about what you see, but what she says is very sobering and sad. She nearly breaks down a few times in her interview with Aaron Brown.
