New Orleans pounded by hurricane

Hurricane Katrina is pummelling New Orleans with howling gusts and blinding rain, after sweeping ashore over the southern Louisiana coast. The storm has knocked out power and submerged part of the low-lying city in up to 2m of rising water. Katrina has torn part of the roof of a stadium, where many sought refuge.
