Hurricane survivor Keisha has been living in the parking lot of Kmart with her children. She has no idea whether her two little brothers survived the hurricane. Like others, she returned to Waveland expecting to find shelter, but found nothing. "We slept on a blanket," she says, "the five of us, for two days. Then someone left and gave us a small tent and a tarp for the kids. There was little water, little food, little anything."

Oprah: Has FEMA [the Federal Emergency Management Agency] been here?

Keisha: No, we have yet to see them. The only FEMA we've seen are the Search and Rescue FEMA. But a relief team we have yet to see.

Oprah: Do you feel abandoned?

Keisha: Yes.
