<b><i>Tough spot...<br></b></i>
Rescue teams from the National Park Service and Grand County Search and Rescue work to help a man who became stranded on Turret Arch on Sunday, Aug. 2. The 22-year-old man had climbed up the north side of the arch, where he became stuck and was unable to climb back down, according to information from the Arches National Park. Rescue workers had to drill bolts into the rock to secure ropes so that they could lower the man to safety. The rescue operation took about 2.25 hours to complete, Grand County Search and Rescue Commander Jim Webster said. As all arches and named features within the park are closed to climbing, the man was later issued a citation for violating Park Service Regulations, park officials told The Times-Independent.

Katrina's powerful winds and driving rain bore down on Louisiana on Aug. 29, 2005. The storm caused major damage to the Gulf Coast from Texas to central Florida while powering a storm surge that breached the system of levees that were built to protect New Orleans from flooding.
