Back by popular demand. The airwaves will again be filled with K5 special event stations
as well as some bonus stations to add to the mix.
The event will begin at 00:00 on August 27 and will end at 23:59:59 on August 30.
Please keep our neighbors in Louisiana in your thoughts and prayers as they begin
recovery from a terrible flood tragedy.
The theme of the 2016 Katrina Event is:
We’re Back, Beautiful, and Busy
We will use this year’s event to invite people back to the Mississippi Gulf Coast
to see the wonderful progress that we have made with the aid of people, like many
of you, from all over the country and the rest of the world. We could not have made
it through the disaster without your help.
The event this year will not be a memorial but there will be a memorial station,
K5M to remember those who lost their lives in hurricane Katrina. There will also
be a Thank You station again this year to try to express our appreciation for the
help people all over the country have provided to help make our recovery path more
