Storm Cycle: Local Hero

Clip: Season 3 | 4m 28s

A dear friend, photographer and furniture maker Paul Guerra, transported people and supplies with his 7-ton truck, often driving 16 hrs. a day through 4 ft. of water. He began alone, hours after the storm, picking up stranded neighbors. Then he went into convoy with the National Guard, bringing people from the "Cajun Navy" boats to the Convention Center. This guy truly is a New Orleans Local Hero.
