Former Kodiak resident Peggy Morris now lives in New Orleans, Louisiana, with her husband Chuck and son Cody. Like most people there she evacuated the Crescent City in the face of Hurricane Gustav, which bore down on them exactly three years after Hurricane Katrina made landfall.

Jay Barrett talked with Peggy live during today’s KMXT Morning News.
