Ten years after the most costly natural disaster in U.S. history, Robert Wooley reflects on how the insurance industry did the work no one else could do. Wooley was commissioner of insurance for the State of Louisiana during Hurricane Katrina. He discusses the long days and nights following "The Storm," the wisdom of not making unrealistic promises in the face of desperation and lessons learned for the insurance industry, in an interview with National Underwriter/PC360 Editor-in-Chief Shawn Moynihan.

PIA National President Richard A. Clements, David Clements and Tim Clements of Clements Insurance Services in Chalmette, Louisiana, share their personal experiences about the days before, during and after Hurricane Katrina hit the New Orleans area and how the insurance industry quickly jumped into action to help out the citizens impacted by the storm, in this video:
