$52.82: Katrina survivor shocked with settlement check

(KHOU) People who survived Hurricane Katrina feel like they’re getting hit again 12 years later with settlement checks from a class action lawsuit.

A mother who rebuilt her life in Houston, couldn’t believe it when she got hers for only $52.82 dollars.

The checks were mailed out July 31, 2017 and 125,000 people from New Orleans are receiving them. It’s all part of a $20 million dollar settlement with local governing bodies, called levee boards.
