Hurricane Katrina: Evacuee experiences
Bernard family
Hurricane Katrina sent a vast number of people flowing around the United States. Now, many of them are trying to settle, temporarily or permanently, in new places.

The Rev. Mark Fowler, left, led the family of Tamara Bernard across Atlantic Avenue in Boston Saturday after a 48-hour bus ride from Baton Rouge. Bernard, her six sons and her boyfriend Ray Garland had finally moved out of the public housing projects of New Orleans and into their own four-bedroom apartment when Hurricane Katrina took it all away. After briefly staying in a makeshift shelter in a West Somerville church, the family wound up at the Sheraton Framingham for a couple of nights while they sought a more stable home.
