Los Angeles Times: After Katrina, a priceless musical archive was thought lost. It showed up in Torrance

Los Angeles Times: After Katrina, a priceless musical archive was thought lost. It showed up in Torrance. “Hurricane Katrina pushed into New Orleans early in the morning of Aug. 29, 2005, and within a few hours, the first floodwaters had crossed the doorway of Sea-Saint Studio. One by one, the three outfall canals bordering Lake Ponchartrain failed and water rushed into Gentilly, the quiet residential neighborhood where Allen Toussaint’s home and studio were located. Even as the storm moved out, the lake continued to pour itself into the city. The next day, Aug. 30, skies were blue and Sea-Saint was fully submerged.”
