The impact of major disasters on children and youth has not been widely studied.  In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, which hit 10 years ago this week,  University of Vermont and  Colorado State University researchers conducted a multi-year study into how the hurricane impacted the lives of  the hundreds of thousands of children displaced by the storm.  UVM Associate Professor of Sociology Alice Fothergill, co-author of the book Children of Katrina,  tells WAMC North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley it is the first significant  study focused on children following a major disaster.
