Was There a Medicine Shortage?

Question by : Was there a medicine shortage?
During Hurricane Katrina, was there a medicine shortage? I’m referring to those who were trapped in houses and those who ran out of medicine (example like if they had illnesses–especially asthma though) was there like a shortage of medicine and medications? And if so, could they have found those medicines and medications inside the abandoned drug stores and such? I’m asking because I’m doing a school report on Katrina.

To the best of my knowledge their had to be a shortage of everything including medicine. Look how long it took to get water to the Superdome. If there was a pharmacy that you could actually get inside of with all that flooding you would have been one of the lucky ones.
