NEW ORLEANS — WFAA reporter Jonathan Betz is no stranger to hurricane coverage. He was working at Channel 8's sister station WWL-TV in New Orleans when Katrina devastated the region seven years ago.

This week, he's back in southern Louisiana providing dramatic reports from the hardest-hit region in flooded Plaquemines Parish south of New Orleans.

He was aboard a rescue boat Wednesday morning documenting efforts to save homeowners trapped in their attics by rising waters.

Jonathan paused Wednesday evening to share his thoughts after a hectic day.
